"Summer Dust" as written by and Stuart Mclamb....
Under the autumn leaves
I found to my surprise
The rings we worn summers since
The flowers were still alive

They say that our own bodies
Are made of bones and dust
And how we lie beneath the maple tree
And pray that the leaves don't cover us
Ohhhhh

Our hearts were beating
Like humming birds that night
A restless wind blew them open
As the birds were taking flight

Young hearts are bright
And just as light
And blowing in the air tonight

She said I want to believe
That we can laugh
But I know that it's tough when your lost in the leaves
And I'm in no rush
But if we try to unite then we might just turn back into dust
It's only natural for us

Walking through this old town
I'm reminded
Of all the trees that we tore down
To let the sun shine in

We buried our beating hearts
Under the rocks and dirt
And now mine is filled with the fallen leaves
And if you're not here it's going to burst
Ohhhhh

Our hearts were beating
Like humming birds that night
A restless wind blew them open
As the birds were taking flight

Young hearts are bright
And just as light
And blowing in the air tonight

    General CommentI think it's "this old town," not "this hotel"; "blew them a bed," not "blew them open"; and "love's in the leaves," not "lost in the leaves." That's what I hear at least.
