Default Autumn of My Heart


autumn of my heart

another sleepless night for me - it seems i'm on a roll.
and at the window, here i sit, as tired takes it's toll.
no matter how i frame the way i feel in my heart
this blue and listless irony will take my soul apart.

out there beyond the dead brown grass, brittle leaves in flight
remind me of those promises we made most ev'ry night.
the things we said while holding on, words sincere and sweet
blown away like autumn leaves to lay lifeless on the street.

here i sit with nothing but some memories of you
not very much to cling to all the long and cold night through
the seasons keep on changing and my mood will do it's part
to usher in that cold dead time - the autumn of my heart.


the mem-o-ries i have of you, you're vibrant and alive
but ev'ry one i have of me i push your joy aside
looking back i see it now, an ego's jealousy
that kept you down and pushed you back - the restless side of me.

so here i sit with nothing but some memories of you
not all that much to cling to the long and cold night through
the seasons keep on changing and my mood will do it's part
to usher in that cold dead time - the autumn of my heart.


nothing i can say, of course, the damage is all done
i feel the earth that is my soul yearning for your sun
as the days grow shorter and the nights loom long and cold
i fear the threat of winter's dark without your hand to hold.

and here i sit with nothing but some memories of you
that's not much to cling to all the long and cold night through
the seasons keep a-changing and my mood will do it's part
to usher in that cold dead time - the autumn of my heart.


now here i am, this cold dead time
the autumn of my heart.

I'm a fan of pretty much anything centered around emotions and autumn. It's a beautiful season, but it's really just a brief and pretty precursor--a promise of colder things to come.

That's sort of conveyed here. Good job.

This is so true!

Thanks for the kind words, Europa. I'm not much of a poet --- or lyricist, for that matter. This was kind of a shot in the dark. I don't think i'll get over to this side of the site much...
