When I see these autumn leaves
drift by my lonely window
I break away and sigh
And when I see these autumn leaves
break from these lonely trees
across the painted sky
I ask myself; Why?
Why must we all die? Just like the autumn leaf, break free into the sky.
Why? Why must we all die? Glide high beyond belief, please smile before you cry
I see these many branches, who've had their many chances,
to break away and fall
But they remain patient, stay in dedication enduring through it all
As I look back at these autumn leaves and these lovely trees, my tears begin to fall
because I take pride in living life, but when we die,
it'll be the end of it all...
