lyrics

spring forwards, to my arms,
jump backwards, at her false alarm--
I’ve been dying for your summer love to start.
fall down, down on me,
stay here & you’ll see:
autumn branches in your eyes will bloom again.


Persephone, forget what your mother says;
Persephone, stay with me here instead.
Persephone, your lips they are glowing red;
forget the world and light my worried head.

you’ve got those summer hands
that warm me, just a lonely man-
lord of nothing, in your personal command.
my heroine, won’t you stay
& stretch my long and cloudy days?
know that snow comes down when you’re away.
