The Avett Brothers – November Blue lyrics

If I weren't leavin', would I catch you dreamin'
And if I weren't gonna be gone now, could I take you home
And if I told you I loved you, would it change what you see
And if I was stayin', would you stay with me
And if I had money, would it all look good
And if I had a job now, like a good man should
And if I came to you tomorrow, and said let's run away
Would you roll like the wind does, baby would you stay

My heart is dancin', to a November tune
And I hope that you hear it, singing songs about you
I sing songs of sorrow, because you're not around
See, babe I'm gone tomorrow, Baby follow me down

I don't know why I have to, but this man must move on
I love my time here, didn't know 'til I was gone
November shadows, shade November change
November spells sweet memory, the season blue remains
November spells sweet memory, the season blue remains

Your yellow hair is like the sunlight, however sweet it shines
Bit by the cold of December, I'm warm beside your smile

Oh lady, tell me I'm not leaving, you're everything I dreamed
I'm killing myself thinking, I've fallen like the leaves
I'm killing myself thinking, I've fallen like the leaves

    This song without a shadow of a doubt is about a man who waited long for his woman to love him the way he loves her. Finally he realizes it will never happen, and his only solace comes in leaving, somewhere away, where he can start fresh. He prays that she'll come around and love him, beg him not to go and realize how much he loved her. However it doesn't happen. Her heart is elsewhere, as it's always been, and as he leaves, he begins to hate himself for investing so much into his lost cause.

    This song is about a man who is madly in love. He loves this woman, but for whatever reason he has to go- probably to find himself and he's worried about losing her. He took their relationship for granted and realized too late how perfect she was for him. He's happy when he's around her and enjoys watching her beauty. He wants her to tell him not to go and to be with her. "he's killing himself thinking" means he hates his own thoughts and probably wishes they weren't there, but they are so he has "fallen like the leaves"
    So what happened? Did he stay? Did he go? Did she follow him? I want to know ;)

    This song is about a guy who fell in love with a girl, and he's not completely certain if she feels the same way. Although, he wants to tell her how he feels. He's leaving for some reason, and is torn because he wants to stay with her, but he must move on. Even thinking of her makes him happy, and this song is about how he'll miss her and wish she'd go with him.
