I had the luck to fall in love
With a girl straight from a dream
I had the luck that some how she
Also fell in love with me
And it happened easily
And too quickly
Like leaves from the trees and fall

We had the love, in other words,
Children we couldn't believe
We had the luck to watch them grow
Wings as wide as the sea
Almost too easily
And too quickly
Like leaves from the trees in fall
Almost too simply
Like leaves in the trees in fall

All the darkness in the past
All falls away in a dream
And all the hurt and all the work,
Everything falls, everything leaves
Like leaves from the trees in fall

I had the luck to get old enough
And get some therapy
I've had the luck again and again
And more love then I need
Almost too easily
And too quickly
Almost too simply
Almost nothing
But really something
Like leaves from the trees in fall
