Autumn Dawning

Official lyrics from the album
Hurricane's Eye
(© St. Cecilia Music)

Do you know Eve
The Mother og all?
She pads around her garden
No neighbours no walls
She's put here with free will
At least that's what we're told
If Holy men speak differently
Their systems might implode
This morning there's a different view
From her shelter beneath the trees
Their paler shade of green is new
As far as she can see

And Eve calls Adam
Her lover and friend
The man God gave the key
She calls him again...

Barefoot he is walking
With his bedroom look and all
The most handsome man on earth standing tall
See the leaves, she says
Evincing their golden lines
And I was cold last night
Hey babe, are you feeling all right?

And Adam looks away
A distant gaze in his eyes
His cheeks are stale, his lips are dry
He doesn't reply...

Time passes. Now yellow the trees
She's the first woman to ever see the river freeze
Butterflies die, birds out of sight
He hasn't held her in his arms
the past thirteen nights

The morning Eve finds her man
The sun is gone
Her eyes are sore, she's crying
What on earth is going on?

Then Adam speaks
And this was never spoken
These words never heard
since man had woken

I don't love you anymore
I have to let you go...

Fall had never been before
Winter had never stood before their door
But now
Around the two
Ever so slow
Paradise is covered in snow
