Sister moved in with a stranger
And here I am in another [?]

And the leaves are slowly fallin'

Yes, the leaves are slowly fallin'
And the last one to fall is me

I should have known the winds of boredom
Would finally blow our worlds apart
Here I lay with another woman
Are you layin' with a broken heart?

And the leaves are slowly fallin'
Fallin' from the family tree
Yes, the leaves are slowly fallin'
And the last one to fall is me

Yes, the leaves are slowly fallin'
Fallin' from the family tree
Yes, the leaves are slowly fallin'
And the last one to fall is me

Yes, the leaves are slowly fallin'
Fallin' from the family tree
Yes, the leaves are slowly fallin'
And the last one to fall is me

Yes, the leaves are slowly fallin'
Fallin' from the family tree
Yes, the leaves are slowly fallin'
