Leaves - Lyrics

Wish that I could say it was a warm summer day
But summer closed for business much too soon
We drove up to the spot where we remember them
And I wonder, does it feel like coming home?

Hands soft as silk,
lightly stitched onto the arms we link in each side of you
Feet stumble, frailer than the leaves that crumble under as we move

We brushed and brushed and brushed but still the leaves came in
So many words to say before the day draws in,
But when you go, you'll turn the leaves to gold

Stretch the mind back to the time of warm summer days
Pushing stubborn donkeys round a field
You pulled your way through darker days, when time stood still
Oh the mysteries that lay beyond my years

Hands soft as silk,
lightly stitched onto the arms we link in each side of you
Feet stumble, frailer than the leaves that crumble under as we move

We brushed and brushed and brushed but still the leaves came in
This sudden rush of love can't stop the day drawing in
And when you go, you'll turn the leaves to gold

We brushed and brushed and brushed but still the leaves came in
I know I've missed so much so I'll just drink this in
And when you go, you'll turn the leaves to gold
