about

Inspired by episode 50 of the podcast A Horror Borealis, the part where Alex and Tim (as Ben and Martha) broke my heart. This was written in 2019 (the last day, okay?) but I only just got around to recording it.

Also I'm experimenting with giving the lyrics word for word instead of breaking out the chorus and only doing it once. Let me know if you don't like it.

lyrics

I’ll See You Around
Lyrics and melody by Cat Faber 2019 (just)

There’s a chill in the air, though the weather was nice
Growing over the water, there are needles of ice
The wild geese are crying, as southward they wend
There are so many things that winter brings to an end.

Looking over the water, you’re starting to cry;
You don’t want to do this, and neither do I.
There are tears on my lashes, a hitch in your voice,
But sometimes our natures converge to one choice.

There is ice on the sound; it lingers at noon
And under the branches the birch leaves are strewn
Your heart is your ground; I won’t importune
I’ll see you around, I’ll see you around
I’ll see you around…
But it may not be soon.

Like autumn’s last sunset, this isn’t a fight;
It’s the frozen earth turning her face from the light.
It’s a long time till sunrise. I’ll get there somehow...
But the light of the stars is no comfort right now.

There is ice on the sound; it lingers at noon
And under the branches the birch leaves are strewn
Your heart is your ground; I won’t importune
I’ll see you around, I’ll see you around
I’ll see you around…
But it may not be soon.
