Scattered Leaves

This song is by The Be Good Tanyas and appears on the album Hello Love (2006) and on the Compilation album A Collection (2012).

Don't you go looking so surprised, baby don't you look so stunned
Didn't I tell you that a cold November'd come?
And deliver the leaves from green to red
To blowing in the wind stone dead

Well I never used to notice this awful quiet
And fall was just the calm before the next spring riot
Of wildflowers and lunatic rivers -
Sweat jumping off of the skin of love givers
(In the park)

Well the scattered leaves don't lie
Aw' now baby, baby, quit your cryin'
'Cause everything that ever mattered, scit-scat scattered
Like every love word you heard
But that's just the way when you walk your days
In the beauty of this world
But that's just the way when you walk your days
In the beauty of this world

Pretty little disappointments all in a row
Been about a year since you disappeared through my door
And now you come back with your head on straight
But I got no love or hate left for you now

Yeah you must be the daughter of the late, late rose - I'm November's son
And I'm here to tell you, honey, oh what's done is done
'Cause, I been claimed by the wind and the rain
No there ain't going back, no there ain't no going back again
(For us now)

Well the scattered leaves don't lie
Aw' now baby, baby, quit your cryin'
'Cause everything that ever mattered, scit-scat scattered
Like every love word you heard
But that's just the way when you walk your days
In the beauty of this world
Yes, that's just the way when you walk your days
In the beauty of this world
That's just the way when you walk your days
In the beauty of this world
