Under the evening stars i walk
The smell of cool, damp earth beneath my feet
On a summer night, In the Orchard

My car is parked down, side of the road
Over the mountains, the red moon glows
Soon the summer will be over, In the Orchard

I've been to this place so many times
Down roads and rows of dreams in my mind
I'm walking through the trees, In the Orchard

Still I see it, when I close my eyes
When sleep's about to come after a restless night
I go there in my dreams, Back to the Orchard

The seasons of my lofe, I watched them pass
The blossomes of spring fall, leaving only winter's naked branch
I remember you and me, In the Orchard

As the days of youth, slip farther from my grasp
Still it haunts me, like a song i cant forget
And now frost covers the ground, In the Orchard

And when the spark of life is almost gone
The seasons slow then stop, and I'll see spring no more
It calls me into forever, In the Orchard

The seasons of my life, I watch them pass
The blossomes of spring fall, leaving only winter's naked branch; into forever... In the Orchard

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs. A memory, especially one that is from youth, are something all of us remember with growing fondness especially as life begins to progress from the season of youth (spring) to that of winter (old age). Classic use of a well known poetic metaphor, and one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard.

    General CommentThis song is pretty self explanatory!! its a complete metaphor for dying and getting old..
    "As the days of youth, slip farther from my grasp
    Still it haunts me, like a song i cant forget
    And now frost covers the ground, In the Orchard "
    Perfect example it says that he's old frost can be defined as his hair turning gray or things becoming cold and old!!!

    THIS IS DEFINETLY THE SONG I WANT PLAYED AT MY FUNERAL!

    General CommentI love the picture he paints in your head of the orchard and the moon. u can also seem to feel n smell it. (maybe thats just me) but nonetheless its a beautiful song. I think the countriness of it adds some sort of element, but my friends laugh at me wen im caught listening to it lol.

    General Commentthis song is beautiful ~
    as previously stated, this song is about time going by too fast.. and his youth is slipping away.
    - and what's wrong with country anyways?
    country was the root for a lot of early punk... and i think the old country influence really makes this song what it is.

    General CommentNick said that the 'Orchard' is a metaphor for the place he grew up. I believe that he feels the same sentiments as robotnik: life goes too fast. Their are of number of lines in TA songs that are on that subject of life passing by and whatnot.

    This song is probably all metaphorical for different memories and emotions he went through in this place that he grew up in. And what better setting to use in this early country-ish song then and Orchard? I personally like TA's country like songs. They fit in with their style and are just so peaceful and full of imagery. At least this one is.
