lyrics

Long shadows hit the ground
Pasted down by yellow sun
On trees with leaves turned gold by autumn
A million pinwheels spin at once

Seasons rush and hurry on
Before you know it, fall is gone
Bands break up and friendships die
And I've made an enemy of time

Get out your slickers, the sky is crying
He said "Forever, you're the one."
Leaves are coming up, reviving
Poking up to miss the sun

Skip a line and then move on
Before you look up, April's gone
Love will end and realign
And I've made an enemy of time

And nothing ends at a good time, because
There was never a good time
And I guess that we were apt to die
'Cause you can't change someone else's mind
So I've made an enemy of time
