Curse Your Branches by David Bazan: A Song for Fall





By on September 21, 2010

A song for the first day of fall (“Curse Your Branches” by David Bazan)

red and orange or red and yellow
in which of these do you believe
if you’re not sure right now please take a moment
i need your signature before you leave

when i sleep i’m usually dreaming
though more and more it’s only one
where every hired gun i’ve ever fired
is making love to you while i look on

all fallen leaves should curse their branches
for not letting them decide where they should fall
and not letting them refuse to fall at all

digging up the root of my confusion
if no one planted it, then how does it grow
and why are some hell bent upon there being an answer
while some are quite content to answer? i don’t know

all fallen leaves should curse their branches
for not letting them decide where they should fall
and not letting them refuse to fall at all

Here’s a video of David Bazan performing this song live:
