lyrics

I want to walk and get lost
I want to keep us moving because I know this frost
and it will move up your leg from your toes so fast if you let it
I want to keep you with me
If you'd fall on me like these brown leaves then I'd scoop you up
and carry you home in my front pocket

Because that moment's over and it's not for coming back
Staying in the same place makes your muscles fade away

My hands might not be warm, but I started in the thaw
It got too cold outside to sit here on this wall
If autumn's setting in let's not call this a fall
and all your grey matter won't matter at all

Here from under bare trees I can
hear the sound of bare knees on knees
and I've never been sure of to whom they belong
They'll soon be covered up for insulation but with any luck
There will come a time when they will meet again

Because that moment's over and it's not for coming back
Staying in the same place makes your muscles fade away

My hands might not be warm, but I started in the thaw
It got too cold outside to sit here on this wall
If autumn's setting in, let's not call this a fall
and all your grey matter won't matter at all
