Mat Kerekes – Autumn Dress Lyrics

Autumn Dress Lyrics by Mat Kerekes


[Mat Kerekes]
Lay on the desert floor, we
Are vultures pickin’ scraps, you
Might not make that first swing
But I know you’ll connect soon
It gets hard for you
I see it in your face from time to time
It’s on the tip of my tongue
This ain’t the place that you know
Don’t have that river you love
Or the sun beating down, boy
Within the dark the scene looks
Beautiful to me no matter what

[Mat Kerekes]
And if it’s right in front of you
Then why don’t you see it?
Why don’t you see it?
Yeah, I’ll remember you
Lovely in your autumn dress, yeah

[Mat Kerekes]
Lay on your bedroom floor, let’s
Give a little this time
If life is unforgiving
I’ll give you peace of mind, I
I have been there before
Obsession creates problems of its own
When the embers burn cold
You look but you don’t care
And there’s no distance, I will always meet you anywhere
I am tougher than you know
I want what I’ve got and that is so

[Chorus]
And if it’s right in front of you
Then why don’t you see it?
Why don’t you see it?
Yeah, I’ll remember you
Lovely in your autumn dress
In your autumn dress

Lay on the desert floor, you
Can settle in your scars, and
Give anything, a push then
The need is ours, I know you’re
Like a child at heart
You’re a match for thunder in the dark

And if it’s right in front of you
Then why don’t you see it?
Why don’t you see it?
Oh yeah, I’ll remember you
Lovely in your autumn dress
In your autumn dress
