​Autumn Leaves Are Falling

This song is by Clannad and appears on the album Landmarks (1997).

Autumn leaves are falling 'round us
Time to gather all those many thoughts
Of all the things that might have been
Or gained at such a cost
For some of us there's endless hoping
For some of us a craziness, too
Holding onto better reasons
Works for me and you, you know it's true

And when the stakes are higher
Never play with fire
Leave it alone

I wandered through a country churchyard
And wondered what kind of life they led
Walked into a castle ruin
Of gentry that had fled
For some of them had endless hoping
Some of them crazy, too
Holding onto better reasons
We'll never truly know

Those trees will tumble down on a stormy day
And those leaves will fade away, fade away

The autumn leaves are falling 'round us
I'm here to gather all my many thoughts
Of all the things that might have been
As the ground has turned to frost

Leaves are falling, autumn leaves are falling...
