Leaves
B*Witched Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

In winter I fall at your feet
In summer I blow where we meet
And you oh you
You hold me up
Till like a leaf we fall
On to the ground

Its time for seasons to go
A reason, a reason to know
And you oh you
You hold me up
'Til like a leaf we fall
On to the ground

In winter I fall at your feet
In summer I blow where we meet
And you oh you
You hold me up
'Til like a leaf we fall
On to the ground

And you oh you
You hold me up
'Til like a leaf we fall
Onto the ground
Onto the ground
Onto the ground




'Til like a leaf we fall
Onto the ground

Overall Meaning

The song "Leaves" by B*Witched seems to be about the cyclical nature of relationships, using the changing of seasons as a metaphor. In winter, the singer falls at the feet of their partner, while in summer they blow in the wind, meeting their partner wherever they go. The partner is a stabilizing force, holding the singer up until they both fall like leaves to the ground. There is a sense of acceptance in the repetition of the chorus, acknowledging that the falling of the leaves is a natural part of the relationship's cycle.


The lyrics are open-ended enough to allow for individual interpretation, but a possible explanation is that the relationship depicted is one where the singer feels vulnerable in winter, seeking comfort and grounding from their partner. In summer, they feel freer to explore and be themselves, but still rely on their partner to hold them steady. The falling of the leaves symbolizes a peaceful transition into later stages of the relationship, where they both let go and fall together.


Overall, "Leaves" is a tender and introspective piece that showcases B*Witched's harmonies and heartfelt lyrics.
