Leaves That Are Green Lyrics by Simon And Garfunkel


Simon And Garfunkel Lyrics

Leaves That Are Green Lyrics
I was twenty-one years old
When I wrote this song
I'm twenty-two now
But I won't be for long
Time hurries on

{Chorus}
And the leaves that are green
Turn to brown
And they wither with the wind
And they crumble in your hand

Once my heart was filled
With the love of a girl
I held her close
But she faded in the night
Like a poem I meant to write

{Chorus}

I threw a pebble in a brook
And watched the ripples run away
And they never made a sound

{Chorus}

Hello, hello, hello, hello
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
That's all there is
And the leaves that are green
Turned to brown
