lyrics

There's a barking booming through the woods
But I hold no fear
As it catches my ear
And she was quite a lively creature where I stood
She was tall
The colour of fall
I didn't know what to say
I felt smaller than a newborn babe

There's a darkness looming through the woods
But it's nice
It's only the night
And it was warmer when she told me that I should
Leave my possessions at the riverside
And they slowly float away
Till all I was has washed astray
In such a way I'm glad when all has been erased
She said

Take me back to the North Cascades
A place where I feel that I was raised
Up on the haze of a blue lake with no bottom
Never knew just how long to stay
The hours fly by like it's a god damn race
We were always caught off guard by the fires of autumn

There's a house that sits out in the woods
It's all mine
And built from pine
It is empty all the months I am not near
A roof so worn
From fighting the storms
Now I forgot just where it lies
And it should come as no surprise
I should've never thought twice when I saw that look in her eyes
When she said

Take me back to the North Cascades
A place where I feel that I was raised
Up on the haze of a blue lake with no bottom
All I owned, I never held so dear
Was I wishing that I could move right outta here
To go missing out in the dry red leaves of autumn

Take me back to the North Cascades
A place where I feel that I was raised
Up on the haze of a blue lake with no bottom
Never knew just how long to stay
The hours fly by like it's a god damn race
We were always caught off guard by the fires of autumn
