Track Name: Hues of Autumn
As the blazing summer sun is slowly sinking,
And the cold winter winds begin to blow;
It's of the time of falling leaves I am singing,
When the golden hues of autumn begin to show.

Oh my darling, can you see the fields of parsley,
And the garlics all harvested for the town;
The air is filled with the smell of sage and barley,
Just the night to wear your favorite evening gown.

The neighbors dance and sway,
To the music that they play,
That speaks of the time they've come to know;
And it's the time of falling leaves they are singing,
When the golden hues of autumn begin to show.

As the moon shines down upon the children sleeping,
Fast protecting all their dreams from sudden harm;
The commoners have all retired for the evening,
The sheep and cattle are resting safe in the farm.

The day has come to pass,
They'll be many more to last,
Before the land is covered with snow;
It's of the time of falling leaves that we are singing,
When the golden hues of autumn begin to show.

It's of the time of falling leaves we am singing,
When the golden hues of autumn begin to show.
Track Name: AllHallowMas
Lost in confusion of whether I've been here before
Recalling less of that which I once knew of more
Gold in the water, wonder if it's safe to swim
Think it's alright so I guess I'll just jump right in

Unfamiliar and enchanting
Wonder where it takes me to
Crooked paths begin unwinding
Leading me to someplace new

Little one lost in the garden, will he find his way back home
No need to worry, let him walk, let him roam
This is a time for adventure, a time to live from day to day
Without need or fear or whether you lose or find your way

Unfamiliar and enchanting
Wonder where it takes me to
Crooked paths begin unwinding
Leading me to someplace new

And I suddenly remembered what it felt like to breathe
And I suddenly remembered what it felt like
To live without cause
To move without pause
To have air fill my lungs, and say nothing
Track Name: The Saying & The Said
Here we go again
Another game of pretend
Trying to find the means to an end
And running out of rules to bend
And in time it will show
You did good to let it go
Don't worry now, you don't have to feel guilty
Either way, you're gonna see this through

I know it's hard to ignore
The aching that still wants more
I've been there many times before
And it still hits right to the core
It's the game that we play
Whether it's better to go or stay
All maybes and could-haves won't longer matter
Even as they echo still

(you know I know that you know)
This is how it's gonna start
(you know I know that you know)
Allow it to all fall apart
(you know I know that you know)
Don't let it go to your head
(you know I know that you know)
The saying and the said

And then soon you will learn
The fire's only meant to burn
As long as you choose to yearn
At least until the heart is spurned
And in turn you will see
Things come around eventually
Whether or not the odds are in your favor
Better count the aces up your sleeve

Though in these thoughts you dwell
After you have wished them well
The passing time will tell
How you got wrapped up in the spell
Though it may feel intense
Be it of fate or consequence
Don't let it bear on you any longer
Even as it echoes still
