Autumn Leaves Us Lingering

Hovering over my own steps
Slowly in the rising dusk
Not yet recovered from childhood
But filled with promises and trust

You used to lead me away
To the unknown back of beyond
Lost in the alleys with diligence
But all those years are long long gone

The children in the park kicking autumn leaves
Catching the moments with such ease
People walking by will be slowing down
Autumn leaves us lingering around

Will you happen again
Will you cross my path
With you I was never just audience
I really felt I had a part

You seemed so convinced
Nothing would slip away

Take us back again
To the centre of our own lives
Ready for new directions
For everything that survived

The children in the park kicking autumn leaves
Catching the moments with such ease
People walking by will be slowing down
Autumn leaves us lingering around
