and when the night
was closing in,
we shut our eyes to hide again
out in the trees,
the winter grew--strange we never knew,

there is a ring,
that i have found
where we have seen the leaves come circling down: red, gold, and brown,
they fell to you, i was falling too.

    General CommentOn the Sparrow House website, there's a link to Daytrotter. On it, Jared Van Fleet says this about it:
    "This is the last song on the first Sparrow House EP, Falls. I thought at one time that I wanted to lose this memory, but gradually realized I wanted only to adjust my perspective. I liked the idea of falling complemented by a high sustaining sound. In a way, it’s the question of whether falling is a matter of weight (pushing down) or lightness (giving up). Drawn to the implications of lightness, I eventually centered that whole EP around the idea of what it means to give up. The actual recording also prominently features a trumpet, a quena, and a vibraphone played with a bow, and for some reason I keep hearing all of those things in the overtones here… although I suppose it’s nice and fitting to have the voice kept simple and alone.
