Autumn Leaves

 

I think you have to reach a certain age before the lyrics of this song really sink in.  An age where you can see the winter of life closing in.

                                    AUTUMN LEAVES

English Lyrics by Johnny Mercer and Music by Joseph Kosma


The falling leaves drift by my window
The falling leaves of red and gold
I see your lips, the summer kisses
The sunburned hands I used to hold

Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I'll hear old winter's song
But I miss you most of all, my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

(Instrumental for 1 minute)

Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I'll hear old winter's song
But I miss you most of all, my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

I miss you most of all, my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall
