Autumn Lady

Words and Music by Melanie Safka

 

Autumn flower rhyme filters through my mind

But I wouldn't begin to explain without help
from a song and the moon and the sun

Sometimes the wind that blows through life

can stir up the darkness and pain

I've been blown to the right and the left of the

light It's the wind but I still feel to blame

The Autumn Lady is laying now on a
mountain of feathers and down

She spent all her nights under raspberry lights
and her days wrote her days into songs

Why has the maple gone brown on me

Has the falling already begun

I lay in the grass in the fields of the past Since you're gone with the moon and the sun

"I lose vision once in a while

We all get grounded at the start

But I still believe in magic

It comes from seeing with the heart"

"I'm not a magic lady

But I want to sing to help the light

Descend on the earth today

Because it 's gonna get dark tonight "
