The light starts to fade at the end of the day
5 o’clock shadows appear on your face
Dried grass is stubble upon the earth’s chin
As I wait by the window and winter begins
As I sit by the window and winter rolls in

Suspended between day and night
In the dusk of the shadows of your fading smile

Dust glows and falls in the gold beams of sun
I think it’s old skin that you’ve shed
You’re sifting and drifting away before my eyes
I leave so I won’t see you go
