"When the Leaves Begin to Fall" as written by and Irwin Bean....
When the leaves begin to fall
When the leaves begin to fall
Faded rays of sunlight bend low, too weak to crawl
Where the last one crying burns the last before the fire
And the children of the dying hold a matchbook to the pyre
A river of tears drown the last ember's glow
When the cold winds blow and the leaves begin to fall

When the leaves begin to fall
When the leaves begin to fall
Where the beauty of the season turns to gray and ashen white
In shattered rooms lit only by the moon and stars at night
Shine down from above on the sorrow below
No reason to stay and nowhere to go
When the cold winds blow and the leaves begin to fall


Turned down turned away and lost
Into the fire your fortunes have been tossed
As we rock all our babies to sleep
And sing of sweet dreams
Sing on the ocean wide and deep
So close your eyes my little darling
You're in my arms
The world won't turn
The ice won't freeze
And the hunger won't burn

When the leaves begin to fall
When the leaves begin to fall
Will the sky above our heads be shelter for us all
A pillow of stone and a blanket of snow
When the cold winds blow and the leaves begin to fall
When the cold winds blow and the leaves begin to fall
