Step outside into the sun, my love
Let it fall upon your shoulders,
Warm you through your clothes
See, these new shoots of grass are breaking through
In fact, it must be summer somewhere just south of here.
You won't; you won't ever leave my side.
'Cause I won't; I won't ever let your hands slip through my fingers
This is the way we die - just slowly fade
Behind a wrinkled face; from the dust I came
This is the way we walk into the twilights gleam
The shadows grow long, and you're holding me.
Evening comes so quietly, and soon
Wraps all in sunlight fading; inescapable
Sit beside me in the porch light's glow.
My love, we'll fade together; embrace the cool unknown.
