Leaves

Is it the same boat we row round the sun?
I'd rather stay in a place time ignores
The hole we homed in, is it the same one?
Mine was warm enough, you'd never need more

Keeping me sleeping in rose-tinted dreams
Laid like a baby in your steady arms
Now you're chasing change, I'm sewing your seams
Linger a little longer, safe from harm

Leaves free in the wind, stuck in the gutter
You're always leaving, everything ending
Tethered to my tree, still the same color
Autumn takes on which I was depending 

You have to stay yourself, stay here with me
I have to find something better to be
