Green to Yellow

stuck in the traffic of autumn
from green to yellow, from yellow to red
you coulda made that light
now you're sitting and watching
life pass by instead

from deep in the traffic of autumn
from green to yellow, from yellow to red
how can so much be changing
in front of your face
and nothing in your head

there's a chill wind blowing in again
better cover up your skin
this is no time to be caught naked
cuz i've seen the light, oh i saw the light
and what good did it do
i was too far away to make it

so i'm asking the traffic of autumn
from green to yellow, from yellow to red
why are all the most colorful things
the first to start dropping dead

there's a chill wind blowing in again
better cover up your skin
this is no time to be caught naked
cuz you've seen the light, oh you saw the light
and what good did it do
you were too far away to make it

if they’re pretty words we've sung them
if they're ugly words we've thought them
now we're falling here among them

chasing the traffic of autumn
from green to yellow, from yellow to red
what's lived
has bled

but now we're sharing the traffic of autumn
from green to yellow, from yellow to red
and we've finally seen each other's
true colors start to spread
