about

for Anna

lyrics

The wind is getting colder every day
Winter pulls the thread 'til all the edges fray
The fireplace burns low
Darkness gathers round the glow
You sparkle in the soft, retreating light

Gold star in the window up the street
Yellow ribbons snap in the air by the climbing tree
Step inside and bar the door
Slow dancing on the kitchen floor
I pull you close and whisper in the night

When the stars go out
When the mountains fall
When the moon rises up
Just to take her last breath
I'll still love you after all
I'll still love you after all

Gas lines, walk to work, you sent a note
"All my love" and "come home soon" was all you wrote
Sunday dinner, lemonade
Hearts and crazy eights and spades
The boys out playing soldier in the yard

Repeat chorus

At the end of all things
I will look in your eyes
My love never leave you
My love never die

Your hands shake as you take the yellow bars
Your eyes kiss me with the shine and fire of falling stars
Do what must be done
For our daughter and our sons
A flag, a shouldered bag, I touch your face

When the stars go out
When the mountains fall
When the moon rises up
Just to take her last breath
I'll still love you after all
I'll still love you after all
