Lyrics



Sunlight and shadow
As we pass beneath the trees
Warm and cold upon our faces
Dancing to the crackling leaves
Our hearts join in the dance
Of this bittersweet romance
As the seasons roll away from us
Without a backward glance

Sunlight and shadow
As I pass those trees alone
The music’s not the same
Now that I’m on my own
There’s a feeling that I get
When the sun is on my face
It’s a longing for the seasons past
When I slept in your embrace

Now the summer leaves behind
A void I can’t describe
The nights grow colder as I grow older
Without you by my side
And if I could
I would still the autumn breeze
I’d wrestle old man winter
And I’d bring him to his knees

Sunlight and shadow
They pass through every life
Glittering on the gold
And darkening with the strife
A lifetime flits away
Like the passing of a day
As the years roll out behind me
And there’s nothing I can say

Except the summer leaves behind
The nights grow colder as I grow older
Without you by my side
And if I could
I would still the autumn breeze
I’d wrestle old man winter
And I’d bring him to his knees
For the winter chill cuts to the very bone
And the frigid sheets beside me
Remind me I’m alone.
