Oh, lend me your ear
While I call you a fool
You were kissed by a witch
One night in the wood

And later insisted
Your feelings were true
The witches promise was coming
Believing he listened
While laughing you flew

Leaves falling, red, yellow, brown
All look the same
And the love you have found
Lay outside in the rain

Washed clean by the water
But nursing its pain
The witches promise was coming
And you're looking elsewhere
For your own selfish gain

Keep looking, keep looking
For somewhere to be
Well, you're wastin' your time
They're not stupid like he is

Meanwhile leaves are still falling
You're too blind to see
You won't find it easy now
It's only fair

But he was willing to give to you
But you didn't care
You're waiting for more
But you've already had your share

The witches promise is turning
So don't wait up for him
He's going to be late
