Leaves

Album: Wildheart (2015)
  • The leaves, they don't change here
    The leaves don't change here, so I never saw it coming
    Winter hit me, Hiroshima, where did the sun go?
    Just the cruel rain pouring, you say that it's over
    How could it be over, when I never saw it coming?

    Sweet California, sour California
    Sweet California, bitter California
    Sweet California
    I should've known better, I should've known better
    Cause the leaves don't change here

    Heart caught in a riptide, cold Pacific waters
    Keep on pulling me under, drowning in my sorrows
    Eager waves keep on crashing, you say that it's over
    How could it be over? I never saw it coming

    Sweet California, sour California
    Sweet California, bitter California
    Sweet California
    I should've known better, I should've known better
    The leaves, they don't change here

    You know I'm from here, I never saw it coming
    Where did the summer go, when you loved me?
    Where did the summer go, when you loved me?
    You say it's over now, how could it be over?
    I never saw it coming

    Sweet California, sour California
    Sweet California, bitter California
    Sweet California, oh, I should've known better
    Should've known better
    The leaves, they don't change here Writer/s: WARREN FELDER, STEVE MOSTYN, RONALD TYLER COLSON, ANDREW WANSEL, MIGUEL PIMENTEL, WILLIAM CORGAN
