"All Years Leaving" as written by and Howard Elliot Payne....
The card on the table have changed
The ones who have left can't be traced,
But all who are here can be trusted to not say a thing
The doorways tonight hold the ones
Who've taken to being undone
And lust for the love of all the ones who won't mean a thing
But it's alright
It's so alright
To be without
The lost and founds
Of some weekend night
The last wheel to spin for to turn
Has put down a blanket and yearns
For the sigh that was spun from its wheelspinning trickle of light
But it's alright
It's so alright
It's so alright

    General CommentAccording to The Stands website, this song was written in relation to the beginning of a new year, and how in fact 'you are still the same' regardless of any new year resolutions.

    Awesome song though, and fantastic album! Very underrated band!
