apples

apples by Cat Healy

don’t go until it’s over
wait now for the right moment
next time I fall
I’ll be prepared
I’ll make sure the ground
is covered in leaves

when I fall
when I fall

don’t think too much about it
else it won’t make any sense
next time I fall
I’ll float though the clouds
I’ll make sure the ground
is covered in flowers
and I’ll paint all the petals
with the colours of spring
and I’ll catch all the birds
and teach them to sing

when I fall

don’t speak you’ll break the silence
my head can use the breather
next time I fall
I won’t be surprised
I’ll make sure the ground
is covered in water
and I’ll swim ashore
and chase the starfish
in the sunshine
in the moonshine
the stars shine for you

don’t leave unless I’m with you
two hearts are better than one
next time I fall
I won’t be scared
I’ll make sure the ground
is softer than air
and I’ll shake all the branches
and the apples will fall
as the birds
fly
away

    Hope you YouTube sing it one day, like what you did at Christmas.
