LYRICS: Golden Leaves

Golden leaves and the sand we keep
The years have left us. Now can we speak?
Young and reckless, dreamt then I
To take you to heavens, and the stars that shine
But fear took me, though my heart was open
Lost my chance, no words were spoken
Now I’m catching you, on the path I’ve left
Strewn with memories of time’s theft

Will I fall, in this shroud?
Will you call? Will I ever get out?
Your golden leaves are turning red
Sand of time rise from my hand
Time, no more lies
Years ago we said goodbye
My heart was locked, you were the key
Shadows of what it used to be
Sand is turning into golden leaves

I’d give you my hand, come with me
But between us was a secret sea
Taking the fall, for you and me
After the words, will we be free?
Inside of the sand, inside of the leaves
Inside of the branches of my trees
Breaking your fall, now there’s only me
Forget all the words, our history

Singing them now I fall
Pushing you I fall

As I fall, in this shroud
Will you call? Will I ever get out?
Your golden leaves are turning red
Sand of time rise from my hand
Time, no more lies
Years ago we said goodbye
My heart was locked, you were the key
Shadows of what it used to be
Sand is turning into golden leaves

Breaking your fall, I’m down on my back again
Raising you up, feelings overtaking me
Simple enough is what it used to be
Being enough, will we ever really be?
If there’s something you gotta say, better say it all to my face
What has become of all of the perfect memories
So many years and so many lifetimes
So many pictures, they were just in our heads, right?

Dreaming of you every day and night
Wishing for you, make me feel alright
Don’t make me wait
Don’t make me wait
Don’t make me wait

Golden leaves, we are thieves
To ourselves, our memories
We went along our different ways
Now all I want to know is

If I fall, in this shroud?
Will you call? Will I ever get out?
Our golden leaves are turning red
Sand of time rise from my hands
Time, no more lies
Years ago we said goodbye
My heart was locked, you were the key
Shadows of what it used to be
Sand is falling, time won’t freeze
And I will leave you with golden leaves
Golden leaves
