lyrics

Beneath the cracks in the paint, the wood shows through
Worn and grey, the memory of you
Spring has come round once again, as it always will
Stirring into motion things that lay still

The bitter ashen tones give way to timid green
Forget the blood and the heartache this place has seen

And the sun, it doesn’t care
And the trees, they do not know that they live in the bad part of town
They sing “Oh! Life is everywhere”
And the birds they sing along
The ants rebuild their homes
And the trees do not remember the leaves that they lost in the Fall
They sing “Oh! Nature Marches on!”

Season’s bitter cold, her heart’s bitter pain
Are warmed by the sun as the winter wanes
Gonna try once again, before it’s too late
Earth and heart alike are softened by the rains

The bitter ashen tones give way to timid green
Forget the blood and the heartache this place has seen
