  • Like when autumn leaves fall
    Down from the trees
    There goes my honey bee
    I've lost a lot of sleep to dreams
    And I do not miss them yet
    I wouldn't wish them on the worst of enemies
    Let them burn, go from here
    Like when autumn leaves

    To catch a thief, who stole the soul I prayed to keep
    Insomniac, bad dreams got me losing sleep
    I'm dead tired, my mind playing tricks, deceit
    A face in the glass, unable to admit defeat
    All that I am, all that I was is history
    The past unraveled, adding insult to this injury
    I'm fighting the battle for the soul of the century
    Destiny is everything that I pretend to be
    Look, and what I did came back to me eventually
    The music played on, and told me I was meant to be awake
    It's unresolved like everything I had at stake
    Illegal activity controls my black symphony
    Orchestrated like it happened incidentally
    Oh, there I go, from a man to memory
    Damn, I wonder if my fam will remember me

    I've lost a lot of sleep to dreams
    And I do not miss them yet
    I wouldn't wish them on the worst of enemies
    Let them burn, go from here
    Like when autumn leaves Writer/s: AARON LIVINGSTON, AHMIR K. THOMPSON, NICOLAS BRIA KOENIG-DZIALOWSKI, TARIK L. COLLINS
