I am an old and sleepy house
but I stand among the trees
That weave their crooked arms above the path

Which winds it's way over the ground
That's who, now I can't see
Cause the moon is gone and everything is black

Forever's fresh and restless
It cannot find a speed
And autumn chill chases summer into the past

The sun is sleeping longer
I've noticed that the leaves
Are giving up the view that they knew wouldn't last

Because tonight, it smells like rain
The creeks have begun to stretch their banks
And the lights have left, it reminds me
How you would sit by the fire place
And you would read all night
In the chair with the tall sides
And the flickering light
And we would both feel so warm
So loved
So alive
So alive

But tonight my floors are quiet
They don't groan and they don't creak
And the candles are still asleep inside the drawer
There was a noise down the dark hallway
The one you thought was so scary
You would sit, afraid you forgot to lock the door
The fear would fade as sudden as it afraid
And you would be so content with everything...

    General Commentlyrics aren't finished for some reason:

    ...that you were
    and there was something in that quiet
    when it was only you and me
    and now i'm scared that it may be gone forever

    because it's been so long since that tall chair has had any company
    and the fire place is cold and damp and the wind has begun winning
    'cause for so long, i stood for you
    i fought the wind each time it blew
    because her face it made me (?)
    and now i fall each day you're gone
    please come back soon
