Realising a form out of stone.
Roan shaped his heart
Work to mold his passion into clay, like the sun.
In his room, his lady
So be still he now cries

Winter calls, he cries "Don't deny me!"
Time has caught her

Helpless hands soul revealing.
Like leaves we touch we learn.
As winter calls he will starve.

Set to work his strength.
Realising a form out of stone. His work
Could she hear him?
All aglow was his room dazed in this light.
He would hold her.
Highest colors touching others.
Did her eyes at the turn of the century
When we meet, how we'll love, oh let life so transform me.
Like leaves we touched we danced.
As autumn called and we both
I'm sure we know.
Was the sign with a touch
We walk hands in the sun.
Love lingers so.
Was it sun through the haze
As warm as moonlight?
Tears have flown away,

Tell me plainly
As we smile time will leave me clearly.
Like leaves we touch, we see.
As autumn calls we'll both remember
