"The Autumn Leaves (Vocals by Michal The Girl)" as written by Alexander Perls Rousmaniere and Andre Tannenberger....
I woke under cover of darkness
Looked up into the television sky

I wandered through the city alone this
Rain wouldn't stop I couldn't dry my eyes
I cried

Who is the one to blame
Why is it that you never say
When the feeling leaves
If you're through with me

As I'm walking through the rain
Cold tears falling down my face
Like the autumn leaves
On a windy day

I went out to the edge of town
Over bright highways where the traffic was the only sound

While my eyes were looking at the ground
I could see pictures of you floating all around
I didn't doubt

    General CommentKind of an "post-relationship" reflection king of thing I think is going on here (as shown by "if you're through with me" and "cold tears falling down my face like the autumn leaves on a windy day"). The "who is to blame" is also another reflection of the relationship and maybe wondering why it failed.

    Anyway, it's just a beautiful song that employs a lot of imagery.
