Last Leaf Falling


Don't you know that time's a – wasting

Moving life away

I wish that my tomorrow dreams

Were part of life today


Maybe with a little time

My thoughts will all make rhyme

I'll answer a calling deep inside

And live those dreams of mine


Refrain:

Train I hear your distant song

Now, now, now don't remind me I'm alone

Don't you know I realize

The last leaf fell today


So rivers they just keep on flowing

And trains their lonesome songs keep blowing

Calling me to find the love

I need to make life real


There was a girl from my hometown

And love was all we knew

Then reality tapped upon my shoulder

Life for us was through


I met a girl in New Orleans

Well I thought she was the one

But there's still that girl I dream about

In the winter skies I've known


Refrain:

Autumn wind I hear your song

Now, now, now don't remind me I'm alone

Don't you know I realize

The last leaf fell today


Your whisper gives a life of roamin'

And with it I can't find a home

In time I've found the pages

Won't go back to times before


So Autumns' come and she's not here yet

No one here to share the sunset

Someday I hope I find the love 

I need to make life real


There are many songs that I'm a singing 

More than what you've heard

I'm trying to improve the music

Not simply change the words


And if sometime within my life

I find my unknown song

I'll blend the music with the words

And only trains and sailing ships will live their lives alone


Refrain:

Life I hear your constant song

Now, now, now don't remind me I'm alone

Don't you know I realize

The last leaf fell today


Give me just one sweet caress

And I'll only search for happiness

A feeling that I'll never know

Without the love I need to make life real
