"Folk Song" as written by David Gavurin and Harriet Wheeler....
Lying in the long long grass
Blossom on the trees
Springtime's slipping away my love
Yeah springtime's slipping away
When it comes around again
It will never be the same
Heavens slipping away my love
Yeah heavens slipping away
Yeah heavens slipping away

Walking through this changing season
Sorrow spreads its wings
We cant keep a hold on time
Just receive what it brings

Lying in the long long grass
Clouds are drifting by
Springtime's slipping away my love
Yeah springtime's slipping away
Dreaming in this lost domain
Which you'll never see again
Heavens slipping away my love
Yeah heavens slipping away
Yeah heavens slipping away

Walking through this changing season
Sorrow spreads its wings
Light a candle in your heart
Light it to the spring
Walking through this changing season
Sorrow spreads its wings
We cant keep a hold on time
Just receive what it will bring

Mellow evenings in the spring
Full of warmth and hope
You are dreaming unaware
Unaware that you are letting go

Walking through this changing season
Sorrow spreads it wings
We cant keep a hold on time
Just receive what it will bring
Walking through this lonely season
Sorrow spreads its wings
Light a candle in your heart
Light it to the spring

Springtime's slipping away my love
Yeah springtime's slipping away
Heavens slipping away my love
Yeah heavens slipping away

    General Commenti love this song. i think 'nu-clear sounds' is a great album and yeah, it doesn't fit in with the ash sound, but besides that it's a great album. just listen to this, low ebb and numbskull to see why. anyways, that's what i think...

    General CommentI think this one's about holding on to a memory and how the person realizes that we can't "keep a hold on time" and freeze life. The person is lying on the grass and talking to his love about he wants everything to stay as it is and that they should make the most of the time they have.

    One of the best on Nu-Clear Sounds.

    General CommentI love this song. I think that Tim finds it too cheesy though. But I must say that I first thought that the line was : "when it comes around again, I'll never be the same." which made it so much sweeter.
    This is a lovely song though.
