lyrics

How did we get through the year
And never express what we both had feared
That everything once that we had
Had fallen away like the maple leaves
Their green had deepened to red
With sorrow at words that we never said
And weak and afraid they let go
To cover the roots with a mournful peace

And how did we get through the week
Before you decided to finally speak
And hurt from the wind of the fall
I pledged by my heart I would never sleep
But cold came and crept through your feet
The sap disappeared and the blood ran weak
Down into the ground where it stays
Well hidden away from the warmth of me

Spring return if you please
Spring return and we'll grow these leaves

And how we get through the day
When seasons collapsed and the world turned grey
Enwrapped in our kingdom alone
Your fear turned to joy and your laughter strength
We grew into one in that place
And beauty had never worn such a face
But dawn took your sight and you flew
To bury yourself in his arms again
