LyricsEdit

I saw the autumn leaves, peel up off the street
Take wing on the balmy breeze, and sweep you off your feet
And you blushed as they scooped you up, on sugar maple wings
To gaze down on the city below, ablaze with wondrous things

Downy feathers kiss your face,
And flutter everywhere
Reality is a lovely place, but I wouldn’t want to live there
I wouldn’t want to live there

Weighed down by heavy lids, and lunar lullabies
I knew you were wide awake, 'cause you smiled with your eyes

Downy feathers kiss your face
And flutter everywhere
Reality is a lovely place, but I wouldn’t want to live there

From the greenbelt balcony, the wildfires look so pretty
Ponderosa canopy, I’d never leave if it were up to me
To the ruby redwood tree, and to the velvet climbing ivy
Painted all mahogany, I’d never leave if it were up to me
(If it were up to me)

With a starry brush, paint the dusk Venetian blue
'Cause in the evening hush, you’ll never believe the view
And when the leaves return, and their whisperings fill the night
They’ll freeze and burn, where fire and ice collide
(Where fire and ice collide)

Can you feel a silk embrace, in the satin air?
If we dissolve without a trace, will the real world even care?

Downy feathers kiss your face,
And flutter everywhere
Reality is a lovely place, but I wouldn’t want to live there
I wouldn’t wanna live there

I saw the autumn leaves, peel up off the street
Take wing on the balmy breeze, and sweep you off your feet
