Time Enough for Tears lyrics

Let's read the trees and their Autumn leaves,
As they fall like a dress undone
At the end of Summers, love will find lovers
Who need the shadows of a winter sun

Don't tell me you're leaving, we can hide in the evening
It's getting darker than it should
If we read the leaves as they blow in the breeze
Would it stop us now, my love

Time enough for hard questions
Time enough for all our fears
Time is tougher than we both know yet,
Time enough for tears

The moon is milk and the sky where it's split
It's magic, and we all need to believe we can
Wake in the dream, it's not hard as it seems
You know its harder to leave

Time enough for being braver
Time enough for all the fears
Time is tougher than we both know yet
Time enough for tears

I heard you say underneath your breath
Some kind of prayer
I heard you say underneath your breath
That you never want to feel this way about anybody else

Oo - la - la -la   Oo - la - la -la
Oo - la - la -la   Oo - la - la -la

Oo - la - la -la   Oo - la - la -la
Oo - la - la -la   Oo - la - la -la...

Time enough for hard questions
Time enough for all our fears
Time is tougher than we both know yet
Time enough for tears

Time enough for being braver
Time enough, I love this time of year,
Time is tough, its running away from us,
Time enough for tears

Time enough... (I know... I know)
(It's ok - It's ok)
