autumn lyrics – ben rector

“autumn”

so i knew a girl once
she was the one i adored
so i fell in love once
with the girl that i mentioned before

and i’m giving up slowly
giving up slowly
giving slowly love
and so i’m giving up slowly
giving up slowly
learning how to love someone

so look what you did to me
look what you did to me
look what you did to me autumn
i’m a leaf that’s gone falling free
beneath all the maple trees
in front of your house to the bottom

so i watched the leaves fall
all of the way to the ground
and i knew that that was what love was
to die so that it could be found

and they’re giving up slowly
giving up slowly
giving slowly now
and so they’re giving up slowly
giving up slowly
learning how to love someone

they say look what you did to me
look what you did to me
look what you did to me autumn
i’m a leaf that’s gone falling free
beneath oh the maple trees
in front of this house to the bottom

winter’s chill won’t leave until
i let it lay me down
and you can’t see the spring
til you’re like the leaves
here on the autumn ground

and so i’m giving up slowly
giving up slowly
giving up slowly love
and so i’m giving up

so look what you did to me
look what you did to me
look what you did to me autumn
i’m a leaf that’s gone falling free
beneath oh the maple trees
in front of your house to the bottom

yeah winter’s gone
spring has come
love is here can’t you see
like the autumn leaves
bring me to the spring
show me how to love someone
