Mostly Autumn – Fireside lyrics

Oh, you sleep, you wake, you move
You shake off the tears and touch everything you see
Looking for clues, reach for her voice
The birds, the grass, the summer grows
In between, underneath, follow you, follow me
Oh, you sleep, you wake, you move

The first time you crawl in the water you know
Life is an ocean, how far does it go?
Sandcastles crumble, your kingdom is lost
Head for the shelter, head for the rocks

So you stand, you walk to school
The more you look, you learn, you lose
Willing the hours, longing for home
The summer days they last forever
You catch her eye, you follow the trail
Hand in hand, together alone

The first time you touch her you're out of your mind
You would do anything just for release
Love is an ocean, how deep will it go?
Falling, falling, falling

A billion candles alight in your heart
Turn up the moonlight, dance with her soul
This is the song, you'll never let go
Never let go, losing control

Oh, you wake, you sleep, you drive
City to city to country, they all collide
You take for granted the things that you value the most
You take her for granted, the song slips away like a ghost
She closes the door, and tears out your heart
Just the fool who lost it all

She is a memory, a far away world
Pass me the ladder, I'll climb to the moon
You can see better up there don't you know?
Hoping, praying, hurting

But love is a diamond, an ocean of light
Just as you lose her, she falls back in sight
This time it's for real, this time it's for life
Turn up the song

Holding together we gaze at the stars
There is the silence we wonder how far
This story goes, how will it end?
Fill up the glass, fill it my friend
