Wester


I can feel you waiting for me as the sun retreats to the hills and I, beneath the blanket of a burning sky, wrap myself within. Embraced by dead leaves as the rain leaves trails of black down my face, I creep through the twilight to that hidden place beyond the lonely. I'll meet you tonight in the whispers when no one's around. Nothing can stop us now. Tonight in the whispers where we won't be found. I can feel you dreaming of me and the time when our steps are retraced and I creep through the twilight to that hidden place, beyond the lonely, I'll meet you. Beneath a dream, lost in a dream tonight. Smile.

To me, Wester is a love song set in the fall. That is the meaning it holds for me.

I looked up wester in the dictionary and found it to be a wind from the west..i believe that this song is about his love for the night time and for the autumn season. The first verse shows his anticipation for the darkness to come "beneath the blanket of a burning sky, wrap myself within". "embraced by dead leaves.." i think is about the autumn season when the leaves fall off the trees and the rain leaving trails of black down his face is his own tears of joy smearing his mascara. And the whole dream bit at the end is how it all seems as a dream because he enjoys it so much.
