autumn is here
i can smell the leaves
little by little it gets colder

take the bus downtown
ride a bike
to the park
with your trip

people everywhere
immediate processors
writing books and climbing stairs

just a few hours
the sun goes down
all the people hanging around go back home
or stay downtown

autumn is here
i can smell the leaves
the color of fire
i look at the trees grow older

    General CommentIt's like an old feeling remembered all at once- the smell of the season, the memories of the seaosn. The feeling. I always picture taking the bus on a cold day with friends, heading home but glad to be alive. It's a very good song.
