lyrics

Last spring I died,
This spring I'm alive,
Broke down and cried
When this spring arrived.

When the apples start falling,
We'll go to the church, pick them up with our hands,
Her voice is so young,
And it hurts me to know that she can't understand.

Curled up my pen on the line,
And took back my name;
Curled up in bed, just for a while,
Now I'm not the same...

And still I remember your voice just about every day,
I guess that the pain of love ain't likely to soon go away.
And still, I wouldn't go back and chase the vacant years,
It won't do to lie in the tracks when I'm the engineer...

Where you are
When you're trapped inside a dream,
Reach through the glass,
But you can't feel anything,
Waking up to find it's gone.

Go for a walk to clear out my head,
She finds me here when I'm not in bed,
A fiery topaz hovers, bearing the signs of her youth,
She hears the weight in my voice, but I can't bear to tell her the truth...

Here I am,
And I'm trapped inside a dream,
Reach out my hand,
But I can't touch anything,
Oh, I don't wanna hear it now.

Last spring I died,
This spring I'm alive,
Press down the road,
I'm making good time.
