Based on fragments from two poems by Lou Marshall Gould, "the apache kid", he and I started out a collaboration that resulted in this song lyrics called - In The Time Before The Frost.


In The Time Before The Frost

In the evening lit by streetlights
I am bound to hearth and home
And through the season's bounty
My heart will always roam

Light a candle for the living
Light a candle for the lost
Light a candle for the child
In the time before the frost

In the night my angel's watching
Over sleep and mighty dreams
And behold, the world is one
Across the valleys and the streams

Light a candle for the living
Light a candle for the lost
Light a candle for the child
In the time before the frost

I am gazing out my window
And the days are almost done
Hungry for the wind of change
And the rise of a newborn sun

Light a candle for the living
Light a candle for the lost
Light a candle for the child
In the time before the frost

This is a bit haunting. I can see two guys sitting with their guitars working this out on a crisp Fall evening. Nice work.
