"Autumn Flow" as written by and Lior Attar....
Oh feels like autumns back again so soon
seemy father turning grey under a silver moon
don't remember wen he was a young man anymore
well thats just so long ago
and suddenly i'm asking if you love me all the time
even when the diamond loses its shine

the heaviness of loss and the weightlessness of a baby boy
the despair and the iminent joy

you know temptation only shows you one side of its face
got to make sure you see the other before you join the rat race
i don't know why i'm so happy to take care of you but i've learned
to go with the flow and that's what the flow wants to do

so i don't need to tell you do i my girl
you're sunshine you're everything good in the world
well you know i'm thinking about myself less and less
only holler if it's s.o.s
taking bigger steps to get to you

happy to sit here and watch you and i grow and bathe in the sweet autumn flow

you know temptation only shows you one side of its face
got to make sure you see the other before you join the rat race
don't know why i'm so happy to take care of you but i've learned
to go with the flow and thats what the flow
that's what the flow wants to do

    General CommentI think it's about father-child relationships. Like when he sings:

    "see my father turning grey under a silver moon
    don't remember wen he was a young man anymore
    well thats just so long ago
    and suddenly i'm asking if you love me all the time
    even when the diamond loses its shine"

    Like he's thinking about his own father, and then about his child, and if they'll remain close even when he grows to be an old man.
    And when he says:

    "got to make sure you see the other before you join the rat race"

    It's like he's speaking to a young child, like advising her, to be careful as she goes into the working world.

    "well you know i'm thinking about myself less and less
    only holler if it's s.o.s"

    And this could be about how he'll be there whenever she needs him. :)
    It's a brilliant song, and it's so absolutely sweet.
