The leaves they blaze like blood
singing softly on the lawn
Your voice it trails on through
a broken and a soaken dawn

In the shadows of your mind
I can see the spell is broken
Bitter woodsmoke fills the air
Choking words that were not spoken

Cascades of clumsy lines
mark the grave of conversation
Words that gleam in florid dreams
light the path that wasn't taken

How the silence fills the air
Hard and heavy, dumb and dreary
Leaden clouds they spill their tears
All their beauty spent and wearied

I hear you, I see you
though I know you're far away
Standing beside me
Now I know you're far away

Your darkened hair casts webs
A tangled cast so mean and hard
We feast our emptiness
On honeyed jests and bitter shards

Our burning lips and blazing eyes
wilt and wither with the leaves
The bloodied smoke it cleaves our tongues
leaving nothing but to grieve

I hear you, I see you
though I know you're far away
Standing beside me
Now I know you're far away.
