Silver Leaves Don't Fall

Silver leaves don't fall

They never have to die

They never hurt like I did

When colder weather came on by

Did you ever feel the heartbreak

The bitter sting of pain

The lonliness of a brown leaf on the ground

Being drowned in freezing rain

Silver leaves don't fall

Forever they shine in beauty

But silver leaves are only fakes

They're lifeless and they're empty

Gold and red and brown leaves

Like I, they had to fall

I had to go through bitter times

While the world gave you it all

And while we were descending

The dying leaves and I

We learned that you and silver leaves

Were nothing but beautiful lies
