Alone

how red the sunset in the summer sky
who reaches out from everywhere
so soft the melody that falls
as if the rain upon the world
the quiet summer air
the things that you throw into the sea darling
will always wash up upon a distant shore

and the seasons come and go
and i wake up alone
is there anybody out there
plant your garden watch it grow
and i wake up alone
is there anybody out there

how quite becoming are the autumn leaves
who dance a careless to and fro
so dark the winter nights that fall
as if a blanket on the world
the falling of the snow
