lyrics

Disappearing

Twilight makes me fall in love
with every ordinary thing
The peeling painted shed
The oak trees overhead
The sky cools into darkness
I’m seventeen again
I’m seven
I’m counting down to before I began

This tree stretching over me
first fell down as an acorn
no bigger than my eye
in 1765
The little girl across the street
will strain to remember me
when she has children of her own
In a blink she’ll watch them grow

CHORUS:
Oh my dear
It’s now, we’re here
Isn’t that a good enough reason
Singing songs of summers gone
Please keep holding on
Dance me ’til the last star’s disappearing
Disappearing

I went to the mountain
to ask so many questions
but the mystic, he replied
Put your questions aside
Somewhere deep inside
I keep asking myself
Without my questions who am I
What’s left when I’m satisfied

CHORUS

You are not the answer, my love
You are not the question
You are not a cherry tree
You are one who once loved me
A moment come and gone
Only a fool would still hang on

CHORUS
