red leaves blow in the wind
leaving home and everything it's known behind
barren branches wave goodbye
as the red leaves slowly die
every flower stares and watches
as the wind takes me away
before the sun shone upon me
now the wind takes me away
red leaves falling
through the branches
making their way to the ground
blowing by the flowers sleeping
no one knows the leaves are leaving

    General CommentI think it means going through the phase of life, going wiht the flow(red leaves blow in the wind), then going out on your own(leaving home), and finally dying(red leaves falling) or something like that

    General CommentI believe this song means that as you are changing to a christian, you are leaving your sins behind and being reborn (preferably being baptized). and you look past and forget the sins as they turn into the past of your current being.

    General CommentI think that this song is talking about being different than others. The flowers are people that are like looking down upon him. The flowers also represent to me... people considered normal in society. Do I sound to far fetched lol? I do agree with the leaving and not wanting to thing... but to me flowers must represent something.

    General CommentWhen I think of Autumn I usually associate it with death. So someone passing, which sounds like the speaker. If you think about it, it makes sense.
