Music by 10,000 Maniacs - Lyrics by Mary Ramsey & John Lombardo
I see the leaves of autumn
changing, falling, turning what was green
I see a door standing open,
open to curiosity
we could be together
tear it all apart
would you ever notice
what was hidden in my heart
do we ever listen
closely as willows start to weep
there as we stood upon the threshold
who said forever was for keeps?
would you ever notice what
was hidden in my heart,
my deep heart is reeling forward
and steady on to keep,
who made me miss the last ferry?
who made this river so deep?
