Springtime is over
Don't head for home
Creep up the ladder
And steal over stone

No time to forget this
World's in your eyes
Sway in the cloud blur
And light up the sky

Cast off the color
And tune in to black
The moon touches your shoulder
And brings the day back

    General CommentThe first verse makes me think of time - "Springtime is over /creep over stone" and how it appears not to move on a daily basis then suddenly can catch up with you.

    The second verse is perhaps the sun personified - "No time to forget this
    World's in your eyes"

    and "Sway in the cloud blur
    And light up the sky" point towards the idea this verse is about the sun as well.

    and the final verse makes me think of night - "Cast off the colour
    And tune in to black"

    with the final section perhaps being about the moon going down "The moon touches your shoulder" (shoulder of Earth?) and bringing with it the return of day "And brings the day back".

    Either way, I adore this song.
