"Walked-On Wood" as written by and Geert/hoffman Van Der Velde....
Last night you were running errands with dad, in his car
Tied the ropes round the fence
And saved a ewe flipped on her back
Come morning, the house was full of strangers
You stood out, like knots on old, walked-on wood

One bumped off the ladder
Another moves a rung
I can feel the summer in this current

Behind your shoulders, he looms
What can you say?
When winter is lodged in your throat

    Song MeaningThere's been a death in the family.

    "Come morning, the house was full of strangers"
    The wake/funeral.

    "One bumped off the ladder
    Another moves a rung"
    One member of the family has died, another is closer to death.

    "I can feel the summer in this current"
    The speaker can feel the passage of time; the same "current" that takes away his loved ones is also the one that brings summer and joyful times to him/her.

    "Behind your shoulders, he looms
    What can you say?
    When winter is lodged in your throat"
    The speaker can't talk about things until more time has passed.

    That being said, this is an absolutely gorgeous song.
