I wrote this for Jake, 'cause he told me to write something for him. He said he liked it, and it made me happy.

There's a world where it's always fall
There's a world where I'll always catch you
On one of those fall days..
There's a few days when you're lonely
And you walk alone in your forest
Your world is dying.. the leaves are falling.
And this world is consuming every last bit of you.
But this process is so wonderous, and your curiosity
has your better half by the neck.
Face the tops of the trees, loudly hear me.
Even though there's no music, dance inside
as the descending leaves dance around you.
Because this world has detail and you
just need to look for it..

I'm here, I'm all around.
I'm holding your hands and
whispering without a sound.
Because this is my gift to you,
my world is yours.
My sun and my moon,
my creeks that run
and wings that soar.
And especially my eyes
so you could see through everyone's lies
and see my truths for you..
All for you, the only one I would give this to.
We feel this music we don't need to hear
because this the only reason we need..

And even though now that your world is all right
I'll still check to make sure in your dreams at night.
Because you deserve this..
