Candy corn fills the space above my fireplace
Orange, white, and yellow hues seep through the glass
Maybe you can have a few when you come home this afternoon
Before the light drains from the fading autumn sky

Windows fogging over as the rain pounds up above
Darkness settles in the rooms that we're neglectful of

Candy corn, when I'm left alone I tend to hide
The doors are locked, the curtains tied, the windows shut
Days and days without you, time I'd waste on wasting away
I'm isolated and I need your help to break me out

Wrapped between the blankets, holding on to keep us warm
Overhead we hear the crack of thunder in the storm

Candy corn, there's a time of day when there's no sun
The candles flicker in the moonlight
Everything melts around me; walls turn into dripping wax
Please don't wake me 'til the morning


from Excelsior, released June 17, 2015
April - vocals, piano, electric guitar, bass guitar, keyboards, melodica, kalimba, drums
