The wind is in the birches
on an empty afternoon
& it feels as if I'm fading
into the colours of the room
that is grey & dull & sleepy
& soon another day is done
You're always humming to yourself, son
Where are the words that match your song?

& the streets are strangely quiet
see the students heading home
& soon the voices from the nursery
will fill the autumn air with song
But this is not how I remember
Having nothing on my mind
& though the kitchen clock's not working
You feel you're running out of time

& just like in a movie
we'll end with the town from a birds view
The smoke rising from the factory
The bells are ringin' at the school
But I'm still by the kitchen table
By the flicker of a pale sun
You're always humming to yourself, son
Where are the words that match your song?
