Lyrics

These Times We’re Living In
Music & Lyrics by Kate Wolf

Down by the river the water is runnin’ low
As I wander underneath the trees
And in the park outside of town
The leaves turn brown and yellow now
Are falling on the ground
Remembering the way you felt beside me here when love was new
That feelin’s just grown stronger since I fell in love with you

Now we've only got these times we're living in
We've only got these times we're living in

Winter wood piled on the porch and walnuts scattered on the ground
And would smoke rising to the sky
An old man comes home from work and he hugs his wife in his sweat-stained shirt w
Walks through that door to where it's warm inside
And as I'm walking as the wind rustles in the falling leaves
My footsteps pickin’ out a tune my heart sing silently

chorus

See the roses dried and faded tall trees carved and painted
With long-forgotten lovers names
Old cars standin’ empty and dogs barkin’ at me as I walk
Through the quiet streets the same
And if I could I'd tell you now there are no roads to do not bend
And the days like flowers bloom and fade and they do not come again

chorus
