We watched autumn fall to floor,
Tempting your eye for more.
How many leaves would you burn for gold,
weighing down pockets that you’ve already sold?

We watched the frostbite creep down the open gorge
Where only the bitterest heather can be forged,
How can good, prosper and grow,
Through weathered cracks, upon baron stone?

When the days are dark and the nights are long
And the old cannot go on
Metal will not keep you warm,
When all you’ve loved is gone.

‘Til shelter crumbles from winds that blow,
‘Til the sleet eats at flesh and bone
'Til the birds no longer call,
And all that echoes is rumbling stone.

When the days are dark and the nights are long
And the dead block out the sun
Only then will you want for
All that is gone.
