Last Year's Leaves (Blanche)

Last year's leaves Were dirty lies One by one the came undone And blew away when they died Last year's leaves Were just bad dreams Open up your eyes There's no surprise Just a barren tree Low and behold All those lies were true Hear them ring, everything People said about you I thought I heard the falling rain It always seems to numb the pain Or was that sound th poplar leaves Screaming in the evening breeze? Last year's leaves Pathetic schemes A trusted friend, till the end Or so it seemed You gave your word Looked me in the eye Tell me how on earth Are you worth The tears I've cried? I thought I heard the falling rain It always seems to numb the pain Or was that sound th poplar leaves Screaming in the evening breeze? Like last year's leaves You're last years leaves Without clouds You can't have rain Take away the sun When the shadows are done Will you be ashamed? Heavens to Betsy I'll be a son of a gun Lord have mercy Nobody has won
