The last few golden leaves
Are clinging tightly to their branches
Like they don't want to let go
Like they don't trust what they don't know.

It's not quite winter, and it's not quite fall
And even though it's been a year
I cannot pass you by, not at all
I tell myself, "enough"
My heart can't feel the reason
Why must we into the darkest season.

It's cold, getting colder
I dreamt last night of being older
I looked in the mirror, there was so much grey
If I saw you tomorrow, what would I say?
What could you say?

It's not that I'm not thankful, or grateful
To what we've grown.
It's not that I'm not living my life
Alright on my own.
I just feel the empty space
I just feel the wind blow through
I just thought in any case I would always know you.

    General CommentI think that this song is about losing or being away from someone. It's winter, and she's missing the person 'even though it's been a year.' In the second verse it seems like she's trying to forget (enough) but in the fourth verse, she explains that in more detail. She has moved on and is 'alright on my own' but still misses the person. I totally relate to this feeling of half wanting to forget so it doesn't hurt anymore and half wanting the person back.
