i never wanted to admit to this but my love wasn't true
i rescue the lonely because i'm lonely too
and the way you smile the way you laugh
reminds me of myself
before i fell apart like a drug infected heart
all along in a city by the sea
dirty leaves fall around
all alone and suddenly it seems
dirty leaves fall for you and me
i never wanted your heart to break
but we still knew it would
impossible to save
but did when i could
i replaced your tears your loneliness with cigarettes and wine
but you needed more and we ran out of time
now your love is gone
all all alone in the city by the sea
dirty leaves fall all around
and suddenly it seems
dirty leaves fall for you and me
and once again i'm torn between saving you or saving me
that's why i begged you not to stay
any longer than you should
because i always knew you would
and now it builds more every day
until you're just an object in my way
choking on the words i never wanted you to say
all all alone in the city by the sea
dirty leaves fall all around
and suddenly it seems
dirty leaves fall for you and me
