The time has just passed four o'clock,
and it's starting to get dark.
Could it be time to breakout a heavier coat,
wrap a scarf around my throat?

The laces drag aside my feet.
The next few steps are all I really need to see.
If I lift my eyes the chill whips against my face.
I'll let the landing on the leaves disturb my pace

And they fall and cover, they fall and cover.
They fall and cover the ground

The neighbours' children on the lawn,
are bundled up so they stay warm.
They place hand in hand spinning and singing
ashes, ashes we all fall down.

Inside the war's on the TV;
I watch the images of instability.
Have four years gone by?
Well time seems to fly,
as they stand straight and tall with their heads held up high.

And they fall and cover, they fall and cover.
They fall and cover the ground.
And wake from your slumber although it been slight.
Meet me at the river we'll push past the banks.
feel our feet breach the current but it doesn't say
that the dirt that collects on our soles
will remain even after the sand on our toes fall away.

Behind the blinds the dancing snow.
And tap a pebble shocks a window.
down in the frosty wet winter cold stands a boy who thinks he's all grown up.

And it just might take all of my strength,
and all that I've learned just to say I will not go.
No I will not go, no I will not go.
I won't go when the tears come.

And they fall and cover, they fall and cover.
They fall and cover the ground

    General CommentThis is a solo song from Suzie before her and Jessie formed The Narrative. It sounds similar to The Narrative and Suzie doesn't have her own page so I posted it here.
