"Childhood" as written by and George Jr/board Pajon....
The beginning of the end
Thought the harvest was my friend
The nature of that place
Sends a sweet smell around my head
Oh well

The hardest thing of all
The harboring of our loss
Hiding all the time
We were cast out of everywhere

But not last time
The last time I remember
The last time I remember
It was gone

How I want you to know
How far west we will go
Hand in hand, let it low
All our days in the slow

All my toys are dead

Unraveled at the stairs
Opened but who cares?
Why?

    General Comment"..., the last time I remember,
    It was home."

    = What I'm hearing.

    Additional note: best Beach House song. Using one word to describe it, I'd choose "wistful."

    General CommentI agree, 'It was gone'

    Last line in the 3rd verse I hear: 'All loyal days end slowly'

    General CommentI always heard "...it was warm." However, "home" and "gone" both make much more sense I guess. Beautiful song, either way.

    General CommentHere's what the liner notes give.

    The beginning of the end
    Thought the harvest was my friend
    The nature of that place
    Sends a sweet smell around my head
    Oh well

    The hardest thing of all
    The harboring of our love
    Hiding all the time
    We were cast out of everywhere

    ....

    How I want you to know
    How far west we will go
    Hand in hand let it low
    All our days in the slow

    ....
