A little while ago, I posted lyrics to a song I'd written called "Deciduous Love". I gave people permission to use the lyrics freely.

After reading this thread by jptjptjpt, it occurred to me that I'd never collected the different versions of the songs that resulted into a single thread.

It's late, but here are the various versions. They are are quite diverse! Thanks again David, Shigeki Adachi, Alyn and Janice and Bud for taking my words to places that I never imagined smile

Donating my lyrics to Users Showcase contributors was definitely a productive and interesting exercise.

Deciduous Love

[VERSE 1]
Lost and lonely autumn leaves
My only friends tonight
We're tumbling headlong down a road going nowhere
Forgetting once we had a happy life
All alone, where cold winds blow
Don't we deserve a home?

[CHORUS]
Deciduous love
Deciduous love
Lives for summer sun
Deciduous love
Deciduous love
Leaves when summer is done

[VERSE 2]
I remember back in springtime
My life was looking good
When summer shone and love got strong as days got longer
I felt invincible and self-assured
But seasons changed, blue turned grey
And then came autumn's blade

[CHORUS]
Deciduous love
Deciduous love
Lives for summer sun
Deciduous love
Deciduous love
Leaves when summer is done

[BRIDGE]
One day
I’m hoping that one day
Summer will never go way

[CHORUS]
Deciduous love
Deciduous love
Lives for summer sun
Deciduous love
Deciduous love
Leaves when summer is done

[TAG]
It’s always needing some summer sun
