Lyrics

Winter Leaves

Who knows the reasons
Love can change just like the seasons
It can catch you a a rainstorm with no coat
The clouds on the horizon
You may try to keep your eyes on
But still you might just find that cold air deep in your throat

We had a Spring of love and passion
Where romance was the fashion
Flowers bloomed and green leaves sprouted on the trees
Summer time was golden
Autumn chill....we tried to hold on
Now love has fallen down like winter leaves

Winter leaves on the ground
Sorrow surrounds me
I know love may come again if my heart still believes
Right now the wounds are still raw
But emotions may thaw
I'll see how I feel when winter leaves

Winter leaves on the ground
Sorrow surrounds me
I know love may come again if my heart still believes
But I have no one to warm me
My mood's cloudy and stormy
We'll see how I feel when winter leaves

Nice soothing feel to the song. Relaxing and would be s nice song to slow dance with a special someone to.

Good smooth jazz feel to the song. The instrumentation as well as the arrangement leaves nothing to be desired.

Right away the sounds are incredible. Love the subtle reverb. Upright and drums are superb!! Love the cornet or trumpet. Everything is just beautiful. The arrangement is smooth and changes up when needed... nothing is forced on this track. Love the bpm, so relaxed and steady. Serious groove here. Great stuff!!

love the vibe here consistent with the American Songbook Standards. Extremely well executed. Restrained, effective, wonderful. Great lyrics, great instrumentation.

Hey.......I am going to go out on a limb on this review and just say that this is my old Pal Greg with that Easy Pop-Jazz take on music!! If I'm wrong....please forgive me!! It just has that crazy super smooth vocal and music that he does so incredible well! If this is someone else, you need to get in touch with Greg and do some Killer Co-writing together or just swap spit.........
Hee Hee!
Great Job whoever???

very nice song dynamic is just there where it should be seems at the beginning quiet slow but going on it kind of grows your dynamic . real nice

Lovely intro. Great instrumentation; lovely piano and trumpet. Excellent rhythm section. The singer suits the song perfectly. I don't know whether this is an original song, or not, but if so the lyrics are excellent. Great ambience to the song.
