The summer sun is fading as the year grows old
And darker days are drawing near
The winter winds will be much colder
Now you're not here.
I watch the birds fly south across the autumn sky
And one by one they disappear.
I wish that I was flying with them
Now you're not here

Like a song through the trees you came to love me
Like a leaf on a breeze you blew away

Through autumn's golden gown we used to kick our way
You always loved this time of year.
Those fallen leaves lie undisturbed now
Cause you're not here

Like a song through the trees you came to love me
Like a leaf on a breeze you blew away

A gentle rain falls softly on my weary eyes
As if to hide a lonely tear
My life will be forever autumn
'Cause you're not here!

    General CommentJ.H. is so good at creating moods that invoke feelings of time. For instance this definately feels like Autumn. Its wistfull and sad. Part of why Days of Future Past was so good is that he was able to set the moods of certain times of the day.

    General CommentThis song was recorded for Jeff Wayne's "War of the Worlds" soundtrack. As Justin tells it, he was sitting around one day, and Jeff Wayne, an American record producer living in London, called him. When Justin answered the phone, Jeff asked, "Are you the one who wrote Nights in White Satin?", to which Justin replied, "Yes I did!". As the story goes on, Justin went to Jeff's studio and recorded this song.

    General CommentThis song is absoluteley fantastic. Its catched how you feel when you lose contact with someone special. And Justin Hayward's voice suits this song perfectly.

    An incredible song...
