First Sign of Spring

First sign of spring brings me home
The first sign of spring brings me home

You have gone some place I cannot follow
I’m feeling left behind, low and hollow
Sinking down into the pit of despair
To the sadest darkest depths of nowhere
Grasping on to your true words of solace
Memories that pull me to the surface
Where you’re going you can talk no longer
I still speak to you and I feel stronger

You look out for me, though you’re gone
When I feel lost I will hold on
When I feel low I can understand
I can’t hear you but you can still hear me
You hear me

Whispering
You’re listening

You had leaned on me oh my protector
I had carried you and I remember
When your voice then fell below a murmur
It was clear that I could go no further
Some days when I woke up in the morning
You’re lucid precense lingers from my dreaming
And I think of you wherever you are
My heart goes with you no matter how far

You look out for me, though you’re gone
When I need you I will hold strong
When I feel low I can understand
I can’t hear you but you can still hear me
You hear me

Whispering
You’re listening

First sign of spring brings me home
The spring morning brings me home

Song Notes

Tim said of the song:

This was the first song I wrote for the record. It’s a very sad and simple song about coming to terms with grief and trying to move on.
