no songs left about the rain,
don’t try to write one, not today,
did you have a lot to say?
say it later, let it wait,
+++ there’s a leaf that’s falling, but it hasn’t landed yet,
+++ drifting down to join the rest…

no new words to rhyme with love,
if you were looking, you can stop now,
it’s in everything we found, it’s the water comin’ down,
+++ it’s a leaf that’s falling, but it’s only halfway there,
+++ still suspended in the air…
+++++ and nobody can say if our time will come
+++++ and nobody can say when our time will be done…

there’s nothing new beneath this sky,
she’s gone gray now for a while,
but somewhere up above those clouds
the brightest sunlight just keeps pouring down
+++ & there’s a leaf that’s falling, but it hasn’t landed yet,
+++ drifting down to join the rest…
+++++ and nobody can say if our time will come
+++++ and nobody knows when our time will be done…
