lyrics

When the autumn leaves had fallen, something in the way she called felt like rain
with the gusts of Old Man Winter,
the season's litter turned brittle, bound to break
though I've been through this before, there's nothing I can say

We take a walk down a windy lane
stop and talk to try to ease the pain
what's yours is mine
Though I'll stand just a little bit closer now,
knowing your spirit's sinking down
all you need is time
But I'll pick you up off the floor and we'll weather this storm together

As flurries of snow pile over
and bury from toe to head
sure as the spring's sweet clover
lies underneath on a soft green bed
I will kindle the fire, sit beside you
until the flame melts away
the chill that is frozen inside you
turned your green eyes to gray

These blustery gales have blown the wind out of your sails
off to clearer skies
But if she even knew what she was leaving behind
to have your face when the sun won't shine
All the world's silver and gold couldn't write the tale that you would've told

And flurries of snow pile over
and bury from toe to head
sure as the spring's sweet clover
lies underneath on a soft green bed
I will kindle the fire, sit beside you
until the flame melts away
the chill that is frozen inside you
turned your green eyes to gray
