the first day of fall
is the last day ill kiss the sky
the cold air surprises
my bones have been spoiled
by the summer's heat
the sun hides its face
and ill hide mine too
sooner or later
this winter will rain down
and leave me to wait for one year

ill be there
ill be there
next year this time ill be there
ill dream of the past
and wish that i was there (ill be there)

i am burning the letters
of days gone by
im sorry but i am scared
that my heart will regret
all the things that ive done
breathe in all of the ashes of my mistakes
gently collapse
so no one will notice
youre falling too short of your breath
ive wasted more time
dreaming than living
ive wasted more time dreaming

ill be there
ill be there
so cherish these days
enjoy every breath like it
will be the last of your life
never look back
and never look back because
you wont forget why you cried

    General CommentTheir first song that I heard. Preciously delicate and beautiful lyrics. It is a reflection on his life, what he has been doing and wondering if he's wasted it, thinking about those around him and what he would do for them. He is also comforting others and urging them to look forward, as he realizes he should, I think.

    Notice how many times he mentions the cold, or the snow, or the winter season in their songs. They're from Washington, so it's pretty cold there a lot of the time, I guess. I just love how he implements them into the songs.

    General CommentIt's not that cold in Washington, it just rains for most of our winter, we don't generally get too much snow maybe a few days in january or february we got snow but thats bout it, but the climate definatley can influence a band like DLD it's so different, in the winter is 40 degrees raining and summer its 90 and not a cloud in the sky.
