"Childhood" as written by and George Jr/board Pajon....
The beginning of the end,
Of the heart lost, was my friend.
The nature of that place,
Sends a sweet smell,
Around my head.
Oh well.

The hardest thing of all,
The heartbreak of our loss.
Hiding all the time.
We were cast out, of everywhere,
But not the last time,
The last time I remember, the last time I remember,
It was ?

How I want you to know,
How far west we will go.
Hand in hand they're in love,
Our loyal days in the snow.

All my toys are dead,
Unraveled at the stairs.
Open but who cares.
Why-h-hy-hy?

    General Comment"..., the last time I remember,
    It was home."

    = What I'm hearing.

    Additional note: best Beach House song. Using one word to describe it, I'd choose "wistful."

    General CommentI agree, 'It was gone'

    Last line in the 3rd verse I hear: 'All loyal days end slowly'

    General CommentI always heard "...it was warm." However, "home" and "gone" both make much more sense I guess. Beautiful song, either way.

    General CommentHere's what the liner notes give.

    The beginning of the end
    Thought the harvest was my friend
    The nature of that place
    Sends a sweet smell around my head
    Oh well

    The hardest thing of all
    The harboring of our love
    Hiding all the time
    We were cast out of everywhere

    ....

    How I want you to know
    How far west we will go
    Hand in hand let it low
    All our days in the slow

    ....
