    Just a nice fall day...
    Some walk... some play...
    Out on the lawn...
    You stand where the sun is warm...
    Watching the leaves form...
    One by one... joining each other...
    But its when the wind blows....
    That they come together....

    See the limbs move.....
    As the tree sway...
    Back and forth... to its own groove...
    Dropping leaves..
    As the wind blow them away...
    Then side to side...
    Like some big truck just drove by...
    But only when the wind blows...
    Does the tree have its own flow...

    Light winds with heavy dew...
    Brings the fog... the misty blues...
    Settling on window panes...
    Hiding all the exit lanes...
    Not clearly seeing the picture...
    A glass half empty...
    Praying you have a pitcher.
    Something to keep it full...
    Just to keep the wool...
    From covering your eyes...
    Cause when the wind blows...
    ... I can hear your cries.

    Heavy in the wind,
    Repenting for all those sins.
    From beginning to End...
    Trial and Tribulations...
    All that you amend...
    Just sifting through the wind...
    For when the wind blows...
    All you need to know...
    Is to keep moving...
    Shake it off and let it go

    Cause their ain't nothing like a high tide...
    When the wind blows...
