Choice

Autumn is time for change, spring is so far away
All of these colors fade and nothing is here to stay
Beautifully awkward form, the heat of a hand to hold
While it was once so warm fall has me feeling cold

If it’s my choice then I choose to say goodbye
Because the more we speak the less we understand
But it’s your voice that just won’t let me lie
Yes I love you but I just can’t take your hand

Summer we fell asleep watching the embers glow
Soon they’ll be buried deep in the December snow
Follow the auburn stain of leaves in the rain at dusk
Washing away the pain but I will remember us

If it’s my choice then I choose to say goodbye
Because the more we speak the less we understand
But it’s your voice that just won’t let me lie
Yes I love you but I just can’t take your hand

Gold doesn’t tarnish
Silver doesn’t rust
Diamonds shine at midnight
All except for us
