Forest - Autumn Childhood lyrics

Childhood came to me again
The dust and cobwebs left a pain
That ploughed the furrows of the dead
And burning woodsmoke filled my head
And autumn gold bend out my eyes
And leftme with no alibis

Naked as the stars I was
Lonely as the sky and lost,
The fading light is treating still
And always dead and always will
And all my life is contained in this
The key to each and every wish

Cried… cried! Yes I cried
Oh so tears the rolled down and down and down ‘til I died
Died… Died! Yes I died, oh so Lordy they buried me
I went down and down ‘til I cried

Autumn spread the wings to fold me
Autumn spread the wings to hold me
And take me back

Everyone would be there
Their joy would fill the air,
Everyone would be there

I could stay out at twelve
Turn around enjoying myself
I’d run off quick the smoke was sick, I was there

I laughed out night away
In the colors of the smoke and flame.
The crackling wood, the noise was good, I was there

And everybody was there
Their laughter filled the air,
Everybody was there

And everybody was there
Their laughter filled the air,
Everybody was there

And Autumn returned,
Autumn returned Oh… oh…

Childhood came to me again
The dust and cobwebs left a pain
That ploughed the furrows of the dead
And burning woodsmoke filled my head

Cried… cried! Yes I cried
Oh so tears the rolled down and down and down ‘til I died
Died… Died! Yes I died, oh so Lordy they buried me
I went down and down ‘til I cried

Autumn spread the wings to fold me
Autumn spread the wings to hold me
