lyrics

Laying on the ground
The cold September earth beneath my skin
I watch the world go ‘round
Time moves on while I stay where I been

Someone must’ve lied
When they said “In time, all things will pass”
‘Cause memories can’t hide
The touch of skin like velvet in the grass

But wisps of winter swept you from my sight

My coarse and clumsy hands
Won’t patch the gaps your slender ones designed
Dusty pots and pans
From muddled stews you said you didn’t mind

I remember well
The old abandoned spot up on the hill
We showed but didn’t tell
Of love that burned despite the looming chill

And wisps of winter make me long for the days when
Autumn ground was hard, but you were soft like velvet in the grass

From the place I lay
We fought the storms of distance and disdain
But I would always say
That greener grass can use the extra rain

The battle now has passed
But still it seems I haven’t won the war
The shadow that you cast
Makes me wonder what I’m fighting for

And wisps of winter make me long for the days when
Autumn ground was hard, but you were soft like velvet
You were soft like velvet
You were soft like velvet in the grass
