lyrics

I'm only halfway listening to the rain outside these walls
I got high above the clouds and watched it fall beneath me
But here's the part that's most upsetting, as it trickles down below
I find comfort in the sound, so I let it flood my home

Autumn brings precipitation and wind that chills my bones
I hear it whistle familiar songs of my routine regression
Another spineless September, another winter spent alone...
To hibernate in bitter silence and dream of what could have been

I left my heart in the shadow of summer
Somewhere underneath December's snows
Cold as the wind it blows
I left my soul in a distant summer
But I just don't know where my garden grows
Or where my river flows

Barren branches and hollow trees, how beautifully they once bloomed
I'm brittle as the fallen leaves beneath my feet without you
Now I'm haunted by this weather, the grey skies that once were blue
Cause leaves are meant to lose their colors,
Oh, but I was evergreen with you

How was I meant to lose you too?

I left my heart in the shadow of summer
Somewhere underneath December's snows
Cold as the wind it blows
I left my soul in a distant summer
But I still don't know where my garden grows
Or why my river flows

Because I've been in love maybe once or twice
It's a mistake I'll be making again
So I have something better than complacency to complain about
But with every blizzard I become more embittered
Until I can hardly stroke a flame
Each snowflake's a little different
But when you're under the weather it's just all the same
I've been dreaming of days past this winter's end,
But until then, don't wake me.
