(Feat. Alison Krauss)

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.

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

[Chorus:]
Somebody said they saw me, swinging the world by the tail
Bouncing over a white cloud, killing the blues.

Now you ask me... just to leave you
To set out on my own
And get what I needed.
You want me to find what I've already had.

[Chorus:]
Somebody said they saw me, swinging the world by the tail
Bouncing over a white cloud, killing the blues.

Somebody said they saw me, swinging the world by the tail
Bouncing over a white cloud, killing the blues.
