The leaves are gold, the trees are bare,
The wind has blown in rage;
The sky is dark, the clouds are gray
And all the heavens seem to say:
Men’s life last but a short while
They shouldn’t wait no more;
There’s much to do outside of you
In this world.
You’re not alone just look around you
You have your brothers who need your love.
Why waste your love?
Why waste your life?
Why don’t you give yourself a chance to live
You could be happy with heaven on earth
Why don’t you give yourself a chance to live.
