Clannad – Autumn Leaves Are Falling lyrics

Autumn leaves are falling 'round us
Time to gather all those many thoughts
Of all the things that might have been

Or gained at such a cost
For some of us there's endless hoping

For some of us craziness too
Holding on to better reasons
Works for me and you, you know it's true

And when the stakes are higher
Never play with fire

Leave it alone

I wandered through a country churchyard
And wandered what kind of life they led
Walked into a castle ruin

Of gentry that had fled
For some of them they had endless hoping
For some of them crazy too

Holding on to better reasons

We'll never truly know
Those trees will tumble down
On a stormy day

And those leaves will fade away, fade away

The autumn leaves are falling 'round us
I'm here to gather all my many thoughts
Of all the things that might have been

As the ground has turned to frost

Leaves are falling, Autumn leaves are falling...
