Fallen Leaves Lyrics - Billy Talent

Review The Song (99)



In a crooked little town, they were lost and never found
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves... on the ground

I hitched a ride, until the coast
To leave behind, all of my ghosts
Searching for something, I couldn't find at home

Can't get no job, can you spare a dime?
Just one more hit, and I'll be fine
I swear to God, this'll be my one last time

In a crooked little town, they were lost and never found
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves... on the ground
Run away before you drown, or the streets will beat you down
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves... on the ground

When it gets dark, in Pigeon Park
Voice in my head, will soon be fed
By the the vultures, that circle round the dead!

In a crooked little town, they were lost and never found
sponsored links
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves... on the ground
Run away before you drown, or the streets will beat you down
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves... on the ground

I never once thought, I'd ever be caught!
Staring at sidewalks, hiding my track marks!
I left my best friends, or did they just leave me?

In a crooked little town, they were lost and never found
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves... on the ground
In a crooked little town, they were lost and never found
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves... on the ground
Run away before you drown, or the streets will beat you down
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves... on the ground

Run away before you drown, or the streets will beat you down.
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves... on the ground
Run away before you drown!
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves... on the ground
Run away before you drown!
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves... on the ground
Run away before you drown!
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves... on the ground

The difference is that the ending repeats itself 4 times, not 2, but the first one also has the lyrics "or the streets will beat you down".

Awesome! | Reviewer: Sophia Finch Malfoy | 10/7/13

I know I'm a bit outdated cuz I don't really like punk rock last time but after hearing this song, I AM SO ADDICTED. I really love the lyrics. At first I didn't really get it but upon reading it carefully, I realised it's about drug addiction. And it really fits! Like " can't get no job, can you spare a dime? Just one more hit, and I'll be fine. I swear to god, thiis'll be my one last time..."
It's really true. With any unhappiness, drug addicts will want to get high to smother all the pain. And since they are addicted, they always seem to swear that that will be their one last time!
And it also highlights how as people get addicted, they slowly become disconnected to the people they know, they love. "I left my friends, or did they just leave me..." And the tone is haunting, but catchy, and simply marvellous at the same time!

And to George, I don't this this is gay. I think it's pretty awesome and meaningful. Just because it's about drug addiction, it doesn't mean it's gay. I mean obviously better than all the songs about love and sex we have in the pop rock industry nowadays yea?

Simply amazing... | Reviewer: Clarkyboy | 9/28/09

I loved this song the second i heard it, and cant believe anyone can be so narrow minded and stupid as to say this song is crap etc.

So heres a big FUCK YOU to anyone like ( i might as well) george, who cant keep his opinions to himself because he needs the world to know of his sad, shitty existence.

Anywayz... Awsome song xD

Oh My Gosh | Reviewer: Kevin | 3/16/09

This Is An Awesome Song. This Song... I Will Never Get Tired Of It. When I heard it, I listened it for a whole day. Wow Just Wow.

By The Way. SCREW YOU GEORGE. THIS SONG AIN'T EMO. GO GET A LIFE YOU MORON. YOU'RE PATHETIC, WHY LEAVE MESSAGES ON A SONG YOU HATE? IT'S STUPID. GO BOTHER SOMEONE ELSE.

(I agree with you Magali)

-Kevin :))

Question about the lyrics | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/13/09

Yes, I agree, this song is awesome, but I think I have a correction to make. Where it says here "Run away before you drown, or the streets will beat you down," I think it's actually "run away before you drown, all the streets will be shut down" I'm not sure, but it's really bugging me anyway. Just a suggestion.

There is noooooooo way this song is emo.. Regardless, it's a song that makes you think about everything especially demise... PS George your incrediby stupid I beg of you to actually know what the hell it is your talking about...

This Song's Amazingg. End of Story(: | Reviewer: Magali. | 12/23/08

Haa, I think it's pretty hilarious how that guy George tried to hate on this really great song. In my opininon, he's probably jus some stupid little boy who became a bit less ignorant one day when he learned to type! Nice job George. Really, I mean you manage to anger manyyy people just because you felt the need to leave one of probably many heartless and stupid cmnts you stay up late at nite thinking about here. Who are you to decide we're emo when you're probably just some pathetic little twerp with no life whatsoever who thinks he's the shit jus because he can be rude online? Fagg. Get a new hobby. This song Rocksss. <3 (:

my fav song ever!! | Reviewer: jan | 11/4/08

this is my fav song i have ever heard. billy talent simply rule and i dont care what a craphead like george said about them. this song even arrived in d little shitty island Malta where i live, so just think about it

Reply to Goearge and Grats on the Lyrics | Reviewer: Jeremiah | 9/9/08

Well, since it seems to be a fasion statment to make fun of George I'd like to throw my over observed opinion into the mix.
Music is the souls emotions in sound as it's been said.
Music comes from emotions, even if you write a song about an emotion you've never felt or the song comes from the death of a friend of family memeber there is no meaning in the words, no meaning in teh chords if each is not preformed with passion and emotion.
Every note, every beat has to be felt before it can be played/sung.
I don't care the purpose behind this song, I personally like to hear the power and emotion in the inflection of the singers voice and the power and passion put through his guitar. you can just tell, with out the words, that there is meaning behind these notes, behind each strum of guitar.
Good Lyrical Decisions on Billy Talents part too. I'd like to give my comendments, though they aren't worth much, it's my part to add to a bigger thing. ^^

Wow... | Reviewer: Arora Leigh | 9/1/08

So this song is fuckin amazing! I love it. And george, go suck a fuck. you dont know what good music is when you hear it. this song has lots of meaning and you need to pull your head out of your ass and pay the fuck attention...and saying things are gay was like "cool" a long ass time ago...find a different saying...

yes, wrong text | Reviewer: inmaxu | 7/15/08

liz.t-h@hotymail.com, i think you're right.. in the official website it says "In a crooked little town, they were lost and never found
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves… on the ground
Run away before you drown, or the streets will beat you down
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves… on the ground"
this text is wrong >.<

Seriously | Reviewer: Nathan | 7/6/08

George the comment you left is heartless and pathetic.
If you see a song and dislike what the lyrics intentions are, don't voice your opinion. Because it seems the only thing that your comment did was have Billy Talent lovers bombard you with abuse. Now was it worth it? Didn't think so. I love every bit of this song. Heard it on the radio a few times, found the name, downloaded it and now I've come and got the lyrics for it. Truly inspiring to me, love every bit of it.
