Leaves That Are Green  (Album Version)

Leaves That Are Green (Album Version)

Paul Simon

I was 21 years when I wrote this song
I'm 22 now, but I won't be for long
Time hurries on

[Chorus]
And the leaves that are green turn to brown
And they wither with the wind
And they crumble in your hand

Once my heart was filled with the love of a girl
I held her close, but she faded in the night
Like a poem I meant to write

[Chorus]

I through a pebble in a brook
And watched the ripples run away
And they never made a sound

[Chorus]

Hello hello hello hello
Goodbye goodbye goodbye goodbye
That's all there is
And the leaves that are green turn to brown
