​Leaves Do Fall

This song is by The Rosebuds and appears on the album Birds Make Good Neighbors (2005).

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 you're my love, my family

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

Baby birds don't sing
In this old tree
And I've grown deaf
Listenin' 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 White to save us all
I've worn out both my hands and knees
I'm a desperate girl and that terrifies me

I've waited too long
Now I do weep
For an ancient promise
I could not keep
But I've heard lovers
In death do meet
This swirling ocean
Is the end of me

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