The days are growing colder
The nights and weekends too
I'm trading in my greens and reds
For different shades of you
The stars are shinning bright now
Falling down like autumn leaves
Painting pictures through their golden reds
Pictures of you and me
Your smile says you're happy
But it's cheaper then our words
And your silence speaks so clearly
But I swear I'll make this work

On nights, like tonight
The wind speaks to us through trees
Singing lullabies by moonlight
Your smile rocking us to sleep

The tears grow far too common
In between our eyes
The photographs we pretend to be
Laughter's found in lies
And the laughter we both share
Seems to be our common ground
I'm treading water in our conversations
Just to keep my words around
The music found in silence is keeping me awake
And like the ground in California
Your eyes still make me shake

On nights, like tonight
The wind speaks to us through trees
Singing lullabies by moonlight
Your smile rocking us to sleep

And on days, like today
The paper's our comfort as is our pen
As we bleed our hearts, tearing gossip apart
We make our own fate on papers' skin

The days are growing colder
The nights and weekends too
I'm trading in my greens and reds
For different shades of you...
