Let's read the trees and their autumn leaves
As they fall like a dress undone
At the end of summers love will find lovers
Who need the shadows of a winter's sun
Don't tell me you're leaving
We can hide in the evening
It's getting darker than it should
If we read the leaves as they blow in the breeze
Would it stop us now my love
Time enough for hard questions
Time enough for all our fears
Time is tougher than we both know yet
Time enough for tears

The moon is milk and the sky where it split
It's magic and we all need to believe
We can wake in our dream
It's not as hard as it seems
You know it's harder to leave

Time enough for being braver
Time enough for all our fears
Time is tougher than we both know yet
Time enough for tears

I heard you say underneath your breath
Some kind of prayer
I heard you say underneath your breath
That you never wanna feel
this way about anybody else

Time enough for hard questions
Time enough for all your fears
Time is tougher than we both know yet
Time enough for tears
Time enough for being braver
Time enough I love this time of year
Time is tough it's running away from us
Time enough for tears
Time enough

(I know, I know)
(It's ok, it's ok)

    General CommentTo me this song is about a couple who love each other very much, but for some reason are separating. It's like she's going on one last walk in the woods with him and she's trying to make it last forever so she won't have to lose him.
