Autumn Leaves

I have to say, we had a wonderful summer this year! I made the most of August outdoors, which meant I spent little time online, and my blog suffered serious neglect. But I figure I can more than make up for this now, as the weather has become really cold and I am staying put behind closed doors, concentrating on all the work I want to catch up on.

As some of you will know, every Tuesday I post a photo on my facebook page with some lyrics from a favourite song – mine or another artist’s. This week I thought to celebrate all things Autumn, and share some lyrics from my song entitled “Autumn Leaves”. Here it is below:


Autumn Leaves


And this is the perfect place to share the full lyrics:Autumn leaves on the groundHowling wind, all aroundFaded rainbow, colours goneHold the key until there’s none On my own, running freeNo one coming after meNothing to cling toNothing leftEerie sounds surround my stepsEchoes nearWhisper secrets in my earDon’t follow shadows of the dayLift your eyes and look away Feeling wild and almost scaredMindless dreams I never sharedClimbing branches, hollow barkSit and wait until it’s dark On my own, running freeNo one coming after meNothing to cling toNothing leftEerie sounds surround my stepsEchoes nearWhisper secrets in my earDon’t follow shadows of the dayLift your eyes and look awaySquirrel leapFalling right at your feetSilent noises everywhereDarkening sky, misty airNothing’s clearFeel despairDon’t you care © Emily Coates 2013
