Quiet, please: There are leaves falling
Trees do their striptease, summer is ending
I wonder why you look so far away
Against the sky in fifty shades of gray

Night falls like a grand piano
Outside it could be China
Let's watch the trees that trickled toward the sun
Dance in the rain
Dying to have some fun

Thunder sings a requiem, lightning is taking pictures
Of everything of every point of view
Let's go outside and have our picture taken too
I love you

    General Comment I think this is one of the very best love songs I have ever heard, not just because it is lyrically innovative, but also because the author/protagonist isn't about to take the moment they fall in love for granted. This person is in love with life as much as they are with as another person. There is this feeling like the author just wants to feel as much of this moment as they can. They don't want to miss any part of it, because they know how special it is. It's a fantastic song. I feel lucky and surprised to be the first one to comment on it.
