Halloween Leaves

Halloween Leaves

For the way you fell alone
For the ripple of the stone
In the shallows of the shore
We’ve come to carve ourselves a home

For the way I believe
you will someday
All my troubles fall away

For the coming of the snow
For the bitter winds that blow
Through the plains and through the pass
Through the chocolate lilly grass

For the oak and cottonwood a blind faith
As Halloween leaves fall away

For the coming of the spring
For the light in everything
Still beneath the harvest moon
Hope does sleep, a savior soon

For the way I believe you will someday
All my troubles fall away
Halloween leaves fall away
