falling leaves {by sixpence none the richer}


standing in the middle of a forest
basking in the glorious autumn
watching the leaves as they change
from green, from green to orange, yellow and brown
i'm falling down
i'm falling down
my emotions are deceiving me
blinding my eyes from my nature
robbing my quiet solitude
of tranquility
i'm falling down
i'm falling down
oh, let these falling leaves cover me
let me sink into the ground never to be found

falling down... i fell into a pile of hay this weekend and thought of you. wish you were there. your poetry is layered and textured. i can read it over and again.

i really must make it more clear when i'm quoting a song or something else. this is the second time someone thought i wrote something that i did not. these are song lyrics from a band called Sixpence None the Richer.

i wish i could write like this.
