About the song
This is a Rubified version of a song originally written by Cynthia for the acoustic guitar. The band's arrangement features spooky keyboard, bass and guitar touches by Thomas and Margaret, along with spacious harmonizing backing vocals by Margaret. One of the most "representative" songs of the band's style.
Lyrics
Ghost at the gate
Why don't we go
Over the lay of the land?
Memories fade,
But I can feel them
Wade through the sun and the shade.

Who owns the hills and lakes
When they're just a thought,
Remains of the day?
See how the landscape changed
Till it's gone, it's lost,
But surely you know the way.

Glossy and glazed,
Summer's sweet hold
Carries us far and away.
Lost in a haze,
Green and golden
Out in the fields where we played.

Who owns the hills and lakes
When they're just a thought,
Remains of the day?
See how the landscape changed
Till it's gone, it's lost,
But surely you know the way.

Can't go home again;
I close my eyes and
Follow the path to the place.
Keeping it safe,
I can be there
Lost in a world time erased.

Who owns the hills and lakes
When they're just a thought,
Remains of the day?
See how the landscape changed
Till it's gone, it's lost,
But surely you know the way.
