Leaves That Are Green - Simon & Garfunkel Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I was twenty-one years when I wrote this song
I’m twenty-two now but I won’t be for long
Time hurries on

[Refrain]
And the leaves that are green turn to brown
And they wither with the wind
And they crumble in your hand

[Verse 2]
Once my heart was filled with love of a girl
I held her close but she faded in the night
Like a poem I meant to write

[Refrain]
And the leaves that are green turn to brown
And they wither with the wind
And they crumble in your hand

[Verse 3]
I threw a pebble in a brook
And watched the ripples run away
And they never made a sound

[Refrain]
And the leaves that are green turn to brown
And they wither with the wind
And they crumble in your hand

[Verse 4]
Hello, hello, hello, hello
Good-bye, good-bye, good-bye, good-bye
That’s all there is

[Refrain]
And the leaves that are green turn to brown
