Autumn Is a Painting

Everything that I have ever aspired to be,

Everything that I have ever wanted to be,

Well it doesn’t come so easily, I had dreams and hopes just like you

And oh how I still do, I just wish they’d be in my grasp.

 

And this time it won’t be so hard for you,

To break me like you always tried to,

You said love was beautiful,

You said love was bright as a rose,

But I think that love ages,

With us and it can grow cold.

 

This is not how we were ever meant to fall

 

Fall with fidelity in your heart,

Fall with passion and content,

We won’t surrender to them,

We won’t surrender.

 

Autumn is a painting that’s what she said,

But art is not just a pretty picture to be sewn,

Sometimes we burst at the seams

And it takes more than love to put us back together.

So I’m not gonna sit around here waiting for love to come and try,

So no more pointless love songs mourning for what is dead and gone.

 

This is not how we were ever meant to fall

 

Fall with fidelity in your heart,

Fall with passion and content,

We won’t surrender to them,

We won’t surrender.
