ASPEN WHISPERS
© 2001 Lyrics Bobbie Gallup ASCAP

The sky is such an intense blue
It almost hurts your eyes
The aspens' gold against that hue
Could easily make you cry
On the crisp air a bugle sounds,
Carried on the wind
Some precious things don't last forever,
Others never seem to end

This sun-warmed rock's my hideaway...
A place to clear my mind
And listen to the magpies
Give their opinions of mankind
The whispers of the aspens
Seem to know me all too well
Their language clearly speaks to me.
What touching tales they tell

CHORUS:
They say that aspens whisper
I think I understand
Cause I know our winter's comin'
And it's not what I had planned
They say that aspens tremble
Inside I'm trembling too
I know somehow I must go on
It's what I have to do

Cause autumn in the high country….
Means winter's coming soon
And by the time the last snow melts
I know that you'll be leavin' too
How do we fill the coming months
With a lifetime's worth of dreams
How do we steal a moment's joy
From the stormy skies of pain

CHORUS:
They say that aspens whisper
I think I understand
Cause I know our winter's comin'
And it's not what I had planned
They say that aspens tremble
Inside I'm trembling too
I know somehow I must go on
It's what I have to do for you

TAG:
I may not know God's reason
For why you have to leave
But I know there was a season
When you gave true love to me
