Temperature on that autumn day was at its most bittersweet

Cool, soft breeze, no jacket needed

But you knew it wouldn't last

It was like sleeping with a girl knowing she'd break your heart soon enough

Nature, like nostalgia, is a cruel mistress

Gets you high and leaves you low

The dead trees whispered in my ear

"Your time will come too"

And I laughed, because I knew they were just waiting to go all Jesus on us
