I recall your kisses and they tasted just like medicine
I put all the pieces back together in my head
It seems so obvious now how fragile a thing we had

Prechorus
And all the leaves were on the ground
That fall, the leaves were all around

And you fed me stories
And you polished up your bruises until they shined
It kind of made me wish that I had a bruise so fine

(Prechorus 2x)

I've watched you twice rebuild your life,
Why don't you wait up for me
I stumble, why don't you wait up for me

With your child's smile and your innocence
I'd buy you bows and ribbons, the prettiest bows and ribbons
I made you like a queen with all the gifts I'd given

(Prechorus)

(Chorus)

You're a debutante
And all you've got
Is a head full of someone else's thoughts

(Chorus)

    General Commentputting everything you have into a relaitonship, and not getting anythign back when you need it (when you stumble) -- instead your lvoe uses to strength they have derived form you merely to continue on, without you. Very cynical song.

    General CommentIn the last verse, Nathanson again blends in his value of self-reliance in thought and is critical of those who cannot think for themselves.
