Summer nights begin to fade
The wind is freezing in my veins
And the taxis never came
So I walk home in the rain
Through the closes in this town
And the pathways leading down
From the castle on the hill
Are like the bloodstream running still - through the heart of the city

September days collide
With the summer's long demise
The festival packs out
Rides the last train heading South
And although we long to go
With the travellers in tow
You know we missed the chance
And stand alone at the last dance

CHORUS
We are leaves upon the wind of generations we have missed
I see my life go round these long-forgot fairgrounds
And time is standing still. Embraced with you until
The sun begins to wake me from my sleep

When I was seventeen
I though I'd know what passion means
My heart felt out of place
Broken up and gave away
And the lights that led the way
Down the length of the Parade
Were a trail to lead me home
And they still burn in my soul - a decade later

I saw you there with other men
Through the doors of Robin's Well
The heart of my regret
And a sight I can't forget
And in the years that passed since then
I've travelled miles and loved again
But although I've changed in time
I still miss you sometimes

CHORUS
