Intro:C G/B C/E F C G/B F G

Verse:
C           Dm  
  I saw the autumn leaves,
  C/E                  F
  Peel up off the street,
C                   G/B
  Take wing on the balmy breeze,
       F                  G
  And sweep you off your feet,
C                          Dm
  And you blushed as they scooped you up,
      C/E            F
  On sugar maple wings,
C                      G/B
  To gaze down on the city below,
     F                    G
  Ablaze with wondrous things,

Refrain:
Am                 G         F
  Downy feathers kiss your face,
              G
  And flutter everywhere,
Am              G       F
  Reality is a lovely place,
          G                       C Dm C/E
  But I wouldn't wanna live there,
     F                        C G/B F G
  I wouldn't wanna live there,

Verse:
C                  Dm 
  Weighed down by heavy lids,
       C/E         F
  And lunar lullabies,
C                  G/B
  I knew you were wide awake,
              F              G
 'Cause you smile with your eyes,

Refrain:
Am                G          F 
  Downy feathers kiss your face,
               G
  And flutter everywhere,
Am              G        F
  Reality is a lovely place,
         G                        
  But I wouldn't wanna live there,

Chorus:
C                       Dm
  From the green belt balcony,
Am               F
  The wildfires look so pretty,
C            Dm 
  Ponderosa canopy,
       Am            G    
  I'd never leave if it were up to me,
C              Dm
  To the ruby redwood tree,
C/E                   F
  And to the velvet climbing ivy,
C                Dm
  Painted all mahogany,
       Am            G                 F
  I'd never leave if it were up to me,

  If it were up to me,

Interlude:

Bridge:
F                    G
  With a starry brush,
                              F
  Paint the dusk Venetian blue,
                           G
 'Cause in the evening hush,
                  Am          F
  You'll never believe the view,
                            G
  And when the leaves return,
                                     F
  And their whisperings fill the night,
                        G 
  They'll freeze and burn,
                 Am          C Dm C/E 
  Where fire and ice collide,
        F                C    G/B F G 
  Where fire and ice collide,

Coda:
Am                 G      F
  Can you feel a silk embrace,
           G
  In the satin air?
Am                   G      F
  If we dissolve without a trace,
             G               Am
  Will the real world even care?
                  G         F
  Downy feathers kiss your face,
               G
  And flutter everywhere,
Am              G       F
  Reality is a lovely place,
         G                        C Dm C/E
  But I wouldn't wanna live there,
     F                       C G/B F G
  I wouldn't wanna live there,

Outro:
C            Dm     
  I saw the autumn leaves,
  C/E                F
  Peel up off the street,
C                   G/B
  Take wing on the balmy breeze,
        F                 G
  And sweep you off your feet,
