Track Name: Autumn/Fall from Grace
I drove you back home and we fell into bed
satisfying my body but disturbing my head
now you're enigma and we're never in touch
heard you don't want me, could've figured as much
my swift fall from grace and your poker face
tell me Autumn's gonna chill me to the bone

we all have an ego, says we cannot be used
so was it your pleasure, must I be so confused
a bit deeper substance lurks behind this facade
so tell me the truth, at least give me a nod
my swift fall from grace and your poker face
tell me Autumn's gonna chill me to the bone

leaves are falling from the trees
they leave nothing but my hope
grey horizons, just like my soul
Autumn makes it hard to cope

so was your decision the one I heard voiced
did a friend with opinions ever leave you a choice
your friend needs a lesson in social affairs
he's cost you another, does he even care
my swift fall from grace and your poker face
tell me Autumn's gonna chill me to the bone

the well-wishers tell me I should just move on
love's unrequited and my chance is gone
but I'll remember the friction and subsequent flow
I'll hear your name when the Autumn winds blow
my swift fall from grace and your poker face
tell me Autumn's gonna chill me to the bone
