Evidence of Autumn

There's something about the pavements this time of year that make me think of Genesis lyrics.

The trees are fading now, the brown starting to dominate the green, and every morning there are fresh yellow leaves on the ground. By afternoon the street sweepers have been past, and the overnight fallen leaves have been swept away, with a damp shadow ghost left on the concrete slabs.

Evidence Of Autumn

It's one of my favourite times of the year.
The girl from all those songs
Who made everything feel right
She came in like an angel, into your lonely life
And filling your world with light
Oh, and everybody told you "you're oh so lucky"

Curtains part revealing a country scene
Clothed in green and brown
Evidence of autumn
And recent rain
On a winding lane, a byway
Walking on that road is a certain girl
In all the world the one
Guaranteed to move you and turn your head
When all's been said and done

The girl from all those songs
Who made everything feel right
She came in like an angel, into your lonely life
And filling your world with light
Oh, and everybody told you "you're oh so lucky"

The night is clear but cool
Ooh maybe dawn is breaking as you turn to find her gone
Then you see the note
Ooh you cannot believe it
And you think you'll go insane...

But that was many years ago
And though the pain is dim
A something still remains
Though you hardly can recall
Her face or form
Her memory lingers on
Ooh she made everything feel right
She came in like an angel (in like an angel),
Into your lonely life (into your life)
And filling your world with light
Oh and everybody told you "you're oh so lucky"
