Gold and silver
Is the Autumn
Soft and tender
Are her skies
Yes and no
Are the answers
Written in
My true love's eyes

Autumn's leaving
And Winter's coming
I think that I'll be moving along
I've got to leave her
And find another
I've got to sing my heart's
True song

Round and round
The burning circle
All the seasons
One, two and three
Autumn comes
And then the Winter
Spring is born
And wanders free

Gold and silver
Burns my Autumns
All too soon
They'd fade and die
And then
Aye, there were no others
Milk and honey
Were their lies

    General Commenti love this song. i think it's really moving.

    imo the song is about time passing and feelings changing. in the beginning, he is in love. he eventually realizes she is not right for him. he goes to find another but instead he finds freedom and at the end he knows there's no one left for him to love - no feelings remain, only death.

    General CommentI agree with you heartwork.

    Nick Drake does a cover of this song, too.

    General CommentI may be wrong here but in my high-powered headphones I am hearing "lives" at the end rather than "lies." If this is correct, it would change a bit of the song's meaning.
