Call my name; make me turn around one more time,
If only so you can see me, the way my eyes are shining from the tears,
The love only reflected when I stare at you.
We had a summer that fell into the seasons when it shouldn’t,
Lasting longer than it should…
But no one would ever complain about more summer nights and blue skies.
Call me name, the way that makes me cry and laugh at the same time.
The way I wished you’d never stop calling out to me…
The leaves change and we try to glue them to the trees,
Their reds and yellows and browns mixing with the death in the air,
And our summer nights have lost its romance and playful stars.
Call my name, once more attempt to stop the inevitable.
But we both know the chill is here to stay, our distance growing,
As the leaves fall down, down, down…
But when the wind picks up, the chill in the air that can’t leave my bones,
It’s a sign that this love has lasted its course,
Broken and bent, it’ll take more that a few nice words and a caress of love to break the unsettlement that winter brings,
Though your kiss brings more frost than the chill of the ice.
Call my name…but what’s the point,
I can’t seem to hear you over this blizzard passing through,
Can’t seem to care that I see you mouth open and close, that silence echoes
As the snow melts into the clouds, dancing down onto our frozen skin…
Loving you was like the seasons,
Bring the best when the world was at its peak,
Breathless and beautiful, full of life with so much potential,
But beautiful things are never meant to last for long,
And as the snow begins to fall, I remember the summer nights with you,
And the winter breeze rushes through me,
Reminding me that beauty blooms and fades,
But spring will come once again, and maybe then we can pick up the broken parts,
As the cycle continues, fading in and out, but never once breaking course
