  • I had an exercise to do: begin a song from the title. So I wrote "Dry Leaves" and I realized that our lives, human lives, are like leaves. We grow, we learn, we change, we enjoy good weather and face the bad, and then we fall.

    "Dry leaves floating through the sky
    I give them names as they fall down
    Like characters playing in my backyard
    They’re all the same in a different weay
    Growing and growing to fall someday

    In life nothing really belongs
    Although we try to reap the harvest before it’s grown
    And we seem to seize what we think we own
    But it disappears through time
    Before we even say goodbye
    But I know
    You won’t let me feel this way before we’re gone

    CHORUS
    Our time will come
    We’ll fall like leaves
    Our time will come
    We’ll fall like leaves
    Falling won’t hurt, falling won’t hurt

    I feel safe having you by my side
    Living each moment in the present time
    And we never feel like rushing or slowing down
    Laughter and tears
    Our love will never disappear
    Yeah, I know
    We’ll always feel this way before we’re gone

    CHORUS
    Our time will come
    We’ll fall like leaves
    Our time will come
    We’ll fall like leaves
    Falling won’t hurt, falling won’t hurt"
