Lyrics

LEAVES

I took you down to the fallen leaves and I said
I don’t mind waiting here for you
You pushed away, space is all you need and I said
Well don’t look back this is a single move
You’ve got a life of your own, you’ve got to live while you can
This is what I’ve always been told
I want to be in your company, but its okay if you got to go this road alone

But the old bird’s got his head turned low
No more songs for love, no more singing to the stars above
They know, and I can’t let go, when there’s nothing to hold

I took you back to the old house on the block and I said
Is this where you lived when you were young?
You looked at me with sincerity and you said, this is a house but I wouldn’t call it home
You’ve got move like you’re on the run when things catch up don’t you ever
Settle in that day is done
Well you can leave and seek a new state
but I’ll keep your smile and wandering ways right in front of me

This old birds’ got his head turned low
No more songs for love, no more singing to the moon above its cold
And I can’t let go, when there’s nothing to hold
You can count on me

To get all
These troubles rinsed undone
Trace them back to the same black cause of it all
I’ll take you down to the fallen leaves and I said
Well don’t look back this is a single move
Well don’t look back what do you have to prove
