Let's read the trees and their Autumn leaves
As they fall like a dress undone
At the end of summers, love will find lovers
Who need the shadows of a winter sun

Don't tell me you're leaving we can hide in the evening
It's getting darker than it should
If we read the leaves as they blow in the breeze
Would it stop us now, my love

Time enough for hard questions
Time enough for all our fears
Time is tougher than we both know yet
Time enough for tears

The moon is milk and the sky where it's split
Is magic, and we all need to believe, that we can
Wake up in the dream, it's not as hard as it seems
You know its harder to leave

Time enough for being braver
Time enough for all the fears
Time is tougher than we both know yet
Time enough for tears

I heard you say underneath your breaths
Some kind of prayers I heard
You say underneath your breath
That you never wanted to feel this way about anybody else

Time enough for hard questions
Time enough for all our fears
Time is tougher than we both know yet
Time enough for tears

Time enough for being braver
Time enough, I love this time of year
Time is tough, its running away from us
Time enough for tears

Time enough for tears
Time enough

I know, I know
It's okay, it's okay

(This song, written by Bono, Gavin Friday, and Maurice Seezer, is performed by Andrea Corr with Bono on backing vocals and can be found on the In America soundtrack)
