Summer was gone and the heat died down
And Autumn reached for her golden crown
I looked behind as I heard a sigh
But this was the time of no reply

The sun went down and the crowd went home
I was left by the roadside all alone
I turned to speak as they went by
But this was the time of no reply

The time of no reply is calling me to stay
There is no hello and no goodbye
To leave there is no way

The trees on the hill had nothing to say
They would keep their dreams till another day
So they stood and thought and wondered why
For this was the time of no reply

Time goes by from year to year
And no one asks why I am standing here
But I have my answers as I look to the sky
This is the time of no reply

The time of no reply is calling me to stay
There's no hello and no goodbye
To leave there is no way

Summer was gone and the heat died down
And Autumn reached for her golden crown
I looked behind as I heard a sigh
But this was the time of no reply
