The Rosebuds – Leaves Do Fall lyrics
You've been gone too long
Where can you be
They said three months
You'd come for me
I've shouted "where?"
Out at the sea
'Cause your my love, my family

I've waited for the leaves to fall
For old John Wayne to save us all
I want out both my hands and knees
I'm a desperate girl and that terrifies me

Can you hear me love?
My heart's the sea
It swirls and breaks
Since we can't be
I'm gonna build this sail
And they'll need me
Then we'll have kids, a family

I've waited for the leaves to fall
For old John Wayne to save us all
I want out both my hands and knees

I'm a desperate man and that terrifies me
(Hey, ey-)

Baby birds don't sing
In this old tree
And I've come down
Listen to the sea
So I must go
My bones cost me
To an earthen home to cradle me

I've waited for the leaves to fall
For old John Wayne to save us all
I want out both my hands and knees
I'm a desperate girl and that terrifies me

I praise the lord, now "I'll do it"
For an ancient promise
I could not keep
But I'm her lover
And death do me
This swirling ocean
Is the end of me

I've waited for the leaves to fall
For old John Wayne to save us all
I want out both my hands and knees

I'm a desperate man and that terrifies me
(Hey, ey-)
