"Autumn" as written by Peter Freudenthaler and Volker Hinkel....
And when the land begins to call
The sprites they dance
The leaves they fall
The change's begun
and what remains
Not even thoughts ?not even names

We can remember can forget
We can achieve the highest aims
But we won't change the rules we're depending on
Now the freak of nature's holding up
the mirror to the haughty thoughts
Our brains are filled up
Don't you feel the earth is trembling to heal
the wounds we injured to her heart
The things are easy as they are

And when the land begins to call
The sprites they dance
The leaves they fall
The change's begun
and what remains
Not even thoughts ?not even names

And when the time begins to fade
The side-scene changes because it's late
We cannot keep ?we drop the ball
For now the land begins to call

    General CommentThat's about August. For me exactly, these words draw for me mildly fading sun, hazy sky with warm south wind bringing scent of dried weeds for you to shiver mind with feeling of loosing. Desperate, ultimate, beautiful ending, mad desire to stay forever in this gentle warm, graceful fading. But The change's begun
    and what remains? Not even thoughts, not even names. But now the feeling of departure tormenting me from this song and on the last day of August i can't stand it. Love, Fool's.
