  • Somewhere in the sky it's harvest time
    Looking at the things I've left behind
    Crow is singing in the reckled (sp?) light
    In the back of his mind something's right
    Whisper in my ear, tell me this
    That the branch is getting thin
    I can see the stop just up one more mile
    It's coming 'round the bend

    Leaves are crunching underneath the feet
    Cold is on the face, red with heat
    Bring yourself inside, face the fire
    Cold is out there now, frozen wire
    See you standing here on the bay
    Wind blows your hair, your eyes they're glazed
    And I thought I could come down
    Stare into the water, see your face again
    Or I could climb the tree outside your house
