Greed

lyrics

Nature grows, finally awake
Gentle winds tussle our hair and make the leaves shake
Life all around, and wooden towers
We pack up a picnic and sit amongst magnificent flowers
Dancing in the sun, feeling alive
Taking in all this beauty as our love begins to thrive

Seasons change and lovers grow
How wonderful to hold someone close
As time passes the love creates
Stunning scenes and serene landscapes
Quickly everything becomes more fun
The canopy shades us from the beating sun
As the day comes to its end
We fall asleep together hand in hand

Bright days, warm nights
We return to roaring bonfires after our long hikes
Lightning bugs dance, in the air above
What did we do to deserve this love
Strong as roots, under blue skies
How could this ever come to meet its demise

Seasons change and lovers grow
How wonderful to hold someone close
As time passes the love creates
Stunning scenes and serene landscapes
Quickly everything becomes more fun
The canopy shades us from the beating sun
As the day comes to its end
We fall asleep together hand in hand

Leaves fall, branches break
Nature's life and our well-being is at stake
Overcast skies, wilting plants
Our little camp is shrouded by clouds of circumstance
Blades of grass, can cut deep
We helplessly watch as our heart blood seeps

Seasons change and people fade
Naive to think that we could have stayed
The progress of time is proof of fate
Our days disappear at an alarming rate
Slowly watch as everything we made
Is consumed again by retreating waves
As the sun sets below the tree line
We will both pretend that we are fine

Dark days, frostbite
Staying up later and later just for phone call fights
Freezing wind, a decayed forest
How is it that in my home I feel like a tourist
We haven't spoken, in a few days
I didn't know I could mess up in so many ways

Seasons change and people fade
Naive to think that we could have stayed
The progress of time is proof of fate
Our days disappear at an alarming rate
Slowly watch as everything we made
Is consumed again by retreating waves
As the sun sets below the tree line
We will both pretend that we are fine
