Just when the days start getting colder
I walk the streets I never knew
And there's some words I never told you
The sound rings out like the truth

And if you could see
What's come over me
Then you would know
Cause I'm walking free
The wind at my back
Bathed in afterglow

And as I sit here in this dark room
All I seem to feel is light
And I see color
I see the maroon
In the blood of this life that's ours

And if you could see
What's come over me
Then you would know
Cause I'm walking free
The wind at my back
Bathed in after--

Watch the sun paint an orange sky
Lay me down and feel the days gone by

Just when the day
Just when the day
Oh...

Just when the days start getting longer
I walk the streets I never knew
The sun comes out for you

And if you could see
What's come over me
Then you would know
Cause I'm walking free
The wind at my back
Bathed in after--

Cause I'm walking free
The wind at my back
Bathed in afterglow
