lyrics

a couple of weeks ago, i tried to go back
(did I tell you this before?)
back to the, back to the, back to the place
where yours was the second drawer

i stood in the threshold, and all of the cobwebs
glimmering dusty and bright
reminded me of the gossamer-fine silences
we'd always tie round each other at night

and it still smells like halloween,
and the way things used to be
will anybody look at me
or open my eyes, so i can finally see?

a couple of days ago, i tried to think back,
but there was something in the way
back to a, back to a, back to a time
i wasn't tired every day

i tried to recall the lightness of limb
the crystalline glow of the sun
awakening me from dreams where i'd see
waterfalls, galaxies, fields where my dog used to run

and it still smells like halloween
the golden fires of the leaves
will someone take a hold of me
and promise there's something inside me i might want to be?
i might want to be

a couple of years from now, i'll stop looking back
at least, that's what they've all implied
back to the, back to the, back to the time
i let you come and curl up inside

i'll find in a city some grey, thirsty block
a lightning-rod building that soars
acquiring sky, and reaching so high,
i'll leave those memories all the way down at the doors.

and it'll smell like christmas trees
the scent of something new and clean
but in all of my realities,
i'll never forget what i've seen
what i've seen
