Autumn Leaves

  • If you leave this time I feel that you'll be gone for good, so
    And I hold on like leaves and fall to what is left
    Said her father left her young and
    He said he'll be back with that same
    Song that you just said you'll stay forever with

    It seems that all the autumn leaves are falling
    I feel like you're the only reason for it
    All the things you do
    All the things you do
    All the things you do
    All the things you do
    All the things you do
    All the things you do
    It's safe to say you're the only reason for it

    I've been bleeding in your silence
    I feel safer in your violence
    I hold on like leaves and fall to what is left
    Before I sleep I talk to God
    He must be mad with me, it's coming
    I'm confused who I'll spend my forever with, oh

    It seems that all the autumn leaves are falling
    I feel like you're the only reason for it
    All the things you do
    All the things you do
    All the things you do
    All the things you do
    All the things you do
    All the things you do

    So the iceberg never broke
    And I poked at it and I poked at it and I poked at it
    And I poke and I poke and I poked at it
    But it stayed stagnant then I poked at it some more, some more
    And in my notepad, man I wrote and I wrote
    If I don't have it, if I don't grab it
    If it don't chip then a toe tag is, one last
    I'mma hope, I'mma hope so the iceberg don't float
    If I do manage to do damage to you dammit
    It'd be grand, it's ten grammies or my granite still standing
    With a note, a note that read "granted, don't you panic"
    When you make mistakes the most, the most
    One day it'll make you grow, you grow
    When you outlandish and you lose manners
    To God you shall consult, consult
    When the bright cameras are still cramming
    In your face and it provoke, provoke
    You to act manic, just stay planted
    'Cause you reapin' what you sowed
    Keep positivity in your heart and
    Keep a noose from 'round your throat and
    When you get mad and when you poke at it
    When you poke it at just know, man
    The iceberg is a reflection of you when you re-new your vision
    Just think if it had sunk Titanic, what the fuck would you do to a critic, my nigga?
    Yeah, yeah, tell me, when doves cry do you hear 'em love? (Do you hear 'em love)
    Do you hear 'em?
    And if my ship go down tell me who will abort?
    And they won't let me live even when we mustard the gift
    When it gon' rejoice and forgive, tell me how I stay positive
    When they never see good in me
    Even though I got hood in me
    Don't mean he won't redeem me, Lord

    It seems that all the autumn leaves are falling
    I feel like you're the only reason for it
    All the things you do
    All the things you do
    All the things you do
    All the things you do
    All the things you do
    All the things you doWriter/s: BRANDON ALEXANDER HODGE, CHRISTOPHER MAURICE BROWN, MARK A. PITTS, KENDRICK DUCKWORTH, LEON D. YOUNGBLOOD
