Autumn Childhood

This song is by Forest and appears on the album Full Circle (1970).

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 burned out my eyes
And left me with no alibis

Naked as the stars I was
Lonely as the sky and lost,
The fading light is retreating still
It always did 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 they rolled down and down and down till I died
Died ... Died! Yes I died, oh so low did they bury me
I went down and down till I cried

Autumn spread her wings to fold me
Autumn spread her 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 till twelve
Run around, enjoy myself
I'd run off quick the smoke was thick, I was there

I laughed the 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 till I died
Died ... Died! Yes I died, oh so low did they bury me
I went down and down till I cried

Autumn spread her wings to fold me
Autumn spread her wings to hold me
