Leaves were falling ..just like embers
In colors red and gold they set us on fire
Burning just like a moonbeam ..in our eyes

Chorus:
Somebody said they saw me
Swinging the world by the tail
Bouncing over a white cloud.
Killing the blues

I am guilty of something
I hope you never do because there is nothing
Sadder than losing .. yourself in love

Repeat chorus:

Repeat chorus:

Now, you ask me just to leave you
To go out on my own and get what I need to
You want me to find ..what I've already had

Repeat chorus:

Repeat chorus:

Repeat chorus:

Repeat chorus:
