James Songbook - 9. Autumn in Eden

Autumn in Eden

 

It was late October

And the world was a little slower

And the jack-o-lanterns smiled without mirth.

 

Life was a little easier

As we drank the new wine

And we talked about the frost upon the earth.

 

Things we couldn't say

Stayed between us as we lay

Examining our souls for purity and worth.

 

We were found wanting,

Not knowing what we wanted

Banished from that place to roam the earth.

 

We know the mark of Cain.

We know that special pain.

We have seen Eden's glade.

If only we knew, we had it made.
