Meet me in the morning, we'll go to the park,
We'll hold hands so people in a hurry won't pull us apart.
We'll stop by the fountain, the water cool and calm
And we'll watch a little sadly as the leaves turn brown.

And soon, and soon
They will start to fall,
But now we're looking at the sunshine through the leaves below.
And soon, and soon
Leaves will start to fall;
Till then we'll look at morning sunshine through tree crowns below.

You meet me in the afternoon when you are done with things;
Your finger's bleeding as you give me a rose you picked for me.
There are more roses on the bush, their stems are thick and strong,
But they say: we are so very sorry, but we won't last long.

So soon, so soon
Our heads will fall
And we'll be food to the creatures that live down below.
So soon, too soon
Our heads will fall
And we'll feed the little creatures that creep down below.

Meet me after midnight, we'll walk in the dark,
It's late, but I can't go to sleep without another hug.
I'll find home and honey in your arms and sugar in your breath
And then we'll look for somewhere with a roof before we freeze to death.

And soon, and soon
Snow will start to fall;
Till then we'll dance with falling leaves in darkness down below.
And soon, so soon
A new green will grow;
Till then well dance with falling leaves on dried up grass below.
