Fire Maple Song - Everclear

turn away from the pain you don't want
turning down to avoid them when they call
strange words I heard a long long time ago
I wish I could go back to a summer time
I knew more than twenty years ago
can't lay beneath the sheets
we lie underneath the maple tree
now I can't smile

lying in the grass with the wind around us as we smile and talk
listen to your grandma sing those country songs
she'd tell us how the maple turns to fire every four years
we'd sit in the grass all summer just to watch the autumn come around
I can't smile now

I live alone
and you're so far away
I call you once a year
just around the holiday
I still see you in the night
lying above me in the grass
I can't smile

turn away from the pain you don't want
turning down to avoid them when they call
I can't believe this letter that says you died
I think I'm gonna go back to the old house in north carolina
and lay in the backyard
get drunk and let the leaves just bury me
bury me
I can't smile
