lyrics

Looking for a reason

I saw you picking up apples
that fell down from the tree
We laid next to each other
in the shadow of the leaves

I hear the fall is coming
I see it in the sky
With stories to be told
on cold November nights

And if you’re looking for reason
be sure, I’m not to tell
I’ve been falling out of season
I know that very well
I fell in love with you
and you with my soothing voice
when I sang
if you’re looking for a reason
you won’t get it today

All my pride and honor
slowly decay
You saw it in my face
as it began to fade

I hear the fall is coming
I see it in the sky
With stories to be told
on cold November nights

And if you’re looking for reason
be sure, I’m not to tell
I’ve been falling out of season
You know that very well
I fell in love with you
hear my soothing voice
when I sing
if you’re looking for a reason
you won’t get it today
