First day of autumn

All songs Lucy Prasad / Philippe Perelman


First day of autumn

First day of autumn
Coming to an end and then returning
I’m nothing but a leaf
My colours turning, turning
I’m nothing but a leaf
Forever falling, falling

My eyes are closed
and I’m light and careless
I’ve lost my balance
and I’ve lost my bearings

First First day of autumn
Tugging at my strings and calling, calling
I’m nothing but a leaf
My colours turning, turning
I’m nothing but a leaf
Forever falling, falling

My eyes are closed,
I’m on the verge of blending
right into this autumn
That is never never ending

First first day of autumn
Coming to an end and then returning
I’m nothing but a leaf
My colours turning, turning
I’m nothing but a leaf
Forever falling, falling Falling


Snap (like a fan) [Piano version]

No use remembering what’s turned to smoke
Kill off the memories all in one stroke
Give up the remedies won’t stand a chance
Breathe in the melody of this little dance

One two three, one two three, whispering low
One two three, one two three, waltzing alone
Nothing will hurt me again
‘Cause I can close myself up snap like a fan

I’ll be untouchable keep the suspense
So unapproachable behind my fence
I’ll be a mystery rolled like a scroll
Re-write my history repair my soul

One two three, one two three who cares what’s next ?
One two three, one two three tucked in my nest
Nothing will hurt me again
‘Cause I can close myself up snap like a fan

Running downstairs, holding my breath
Floating on air Flowing white dress
So unsuspecting The sun in my eyes
Never expecting To crash into ice
Mean little trap One two three Snap

One two three, one two three, a lifetime ago
One two three, one two three, time to let go
Nothing can hurt me again
‘Cause I can close myself up snap like a fan

One two three, one two three, blanking my face
One two three, one two three, leaving no trace
Nothing will hurt me again
‘Cause I can close myself up snap like a fan.
