Harvest Thieves

by Caroline Portu Professional

SONG LYRICS

Religion’s made for lovers now I know
Cuz before the day I met you,
I thought God was just a show
Put on by cowards scared to die and fall to pieces far below

But staring in your eyes, there’s something holy
I wish I’d grabbed the second hand, to turn the clock more slowly
To spend the night spinning with the tides
Beneath the summer streetlight with our shadows side by side

But autumn came again this year
With all her imminence and all her fears
And we were green just like the leaves
Born to fall but harvest thieves,
Could never steal you from my heart,
They could never steal you from my heart

It’s funny how the sunshine gives us pause
To live like we’re all dying, well in some ways we all are
You were beautiful with grass roots in your hair
But you’d be beautiful with snowflakes
Cuz you’re stunning everywhere

But I can’t love like I loved in those dog days
The russet trees remind me what I am
I’m a girl who might just die before she’s truly satisfied
And you can’t bring my harmony,
If peace is just a scam

Cuz autumn came again this year
With all her imminence and all her fears
And we were green just like the leaves
Born to fall but harvest thieves,
Could never steal you from my heart,
They could never steal you from my heart

And I’m so sorry I’m so stressed
It’s not that I’m depressed
No I’m just scared to go nowhere
I’m sorry I’m so insecure
It’s just that I want something more
Than a summertime to share

Cuz staring in your eyes there’s something holy
I wish I grabbed the second hand,
To turn the clock more slowly

But autumn came again this year
With all her imminence and all her fears
And we were green just like the leaves
Born to fall but harvest thieves,
Could never steal you from my heart,
They could never steal you from my heart

DESCRIPTION
I wrote this song about ending a summer romance as the seriousness of fall began to creep in. My best friend and I produced it in his bedroom!
