Close Of Autumn

This song is by Caedmon's Call and appears on the EP Just Don't Want Coffee (1995) and on the album Cædmon's Call (1997).

When I'm cold and alone
All I want is my freedom
A sudden gust of gravity
I stop wailing and kicking
Just to let this water
Cover me, cover me

Only if I rest my arms
Rest my mind
You'll overcome me
And swell up around me

With my fighting so vain
With my vanity so fought
I'm rolling over

'Cause in just the same way
That the stream becomes swollen
Swollen with cold up over the ground
When my heart draws close
To the close of autumn
Your love abounds

All this time I'm thinking
Wondering how it would be
To breathe in deep

I guess I need to be careful
When I ask for a drink
(Just might get what I ask for)

And I know just what You'd say to me
That's why I don't ask You
What would I ask You?

I'm like a bull-headed boy these days
Crying my toy's gone
You're shiny and new

'Cause in just the same way
That the stream becomes swollen
Swollen with cold up over the ground
When my heart draws close
To the close of autumn
Your love abounds

Guess I'll drop my anger here
Before I float away
And the chains around me

An awful lot of talking
I don't leave You much to say
You didn't ever leave me

And my greatest fear
Was You'd leave me here
A long time back my feet
Could touch the bottom
