Song of the Day, March 20: Autumn Is Your Last Chance by Robyn Hitchcock

RobynAutumnTrainsToday’s song is Autumn Is Your Last Chance, a standout track from Robyn Hitchcock’s quiet masterpiece I Often Dream of Trains. Hitchcock crafts a delicate web of natural images, noting their beauty and his inability to appreciate them because his love is gone. His fragile delivery is perfect for the gentle lyric of loss and sorrow. The song is a stunning, atypically straightforward track, demonstrating another side of Hitchcock’s talents.

The dew on the cobwebs
Shines like gold
But I don’t care
If it shines all year
‘Cause you’re not there and
I don’t care and
You’re not there

Enjoy this beautiful song today.
