When the Leaves Come Falling Down

 

Nolan Dalla in Belgium 2013

In Maaseik, Belgium — October 25, 2013

 

A wonderful mostly-forgotten gem by one of my favorite musical artists, the marvelous and mystical Van Morrison…..

 

“When the Leaves Come Falling Down”

From the album Back on Top (1999) by Van Morrison

 

I saw you standing with the wind and the rain in your face,

And you were thinking about the wisdom of the leaves and their grace,

When the leaves come falling down.

In September, when the leaves come falling down.

 

And at night the moon is shining on a clear cloudless sky,

And when the evening shadows fall I’ll be there, by your side,

When the leaves come falling down.

In September, when the leaves come falling down.

 

Follow me down, follow me down, follow me down

To the place beside the garden and the wall.

Follow me down, follow me down

To the space before the twilight and the dawn.

 

The last time I saw Paris in the streets, in the rain,

And as I walk along the boulevards with you, once again,

And the leaves come falling down.

In September, when the leaves come falling down.

 

Follow me down, follow me down, follow me down

To the place between the garden and the wall.

Follow me down, follow me down

To the space between the twilight and the dawn.

 

And as I’m looking at the colour of the leaves in your hand,

As we’re listening to Chet Baker on the beach, in the sand,

When the leaves come falling down.

In September, when the leaves come falling down.

 

When the leaves come falling down,

In September, when the leaves come falling down.
