The Fall lyrics

The Fall

Maybe I’m broken
Maybe I’m wrong
I could’ve spoken sooner than I should have
Only the good die old
That’s what they told me
But I don’t know
 
Maybe I’m breaking up with myself
Maybe I’m thinking I should just keep to the things that I’ve been told
Wait for the colors to turn to gold
 
Do you know?
Do you know?
You’re all I know
You’re all I know
When everything
Comes crashing down
You’re all I know
You’re all I know
 
I’m ready for the fall
I’m ready for everything that I believed in to drift away
Ready for the leaves
Ready for the colors to burn to gold and crumble away
 
Maybe I’m destined to be distraught
Always a reason
Breaking me down to my knees in the dead of night
I keep on praying to see the light
Maybe I’m breaking up with myself
Maybe I’m thinking I should just keep to the things that I’ve been told
Wait for the colors to turn to gold
 
Do you know?
Do you know?
You’re all I know
You’re all I know
When everything
Comes crashing down
You’re all I know
You’re all I know
 
I’m ready for the fall
I’m ready for everything that I believed in to drift away
Ready for the leaves
Ready for the colors to burn to gold and crumble away
 
You were the one (x3)
Who helped me see
 
You were the one (x2)
Oh you gave it all to me
 
You were the one
Who helped me see (x6)
 
I’m ready for the fall
Ready for the leaves
 
Ready for the colors to burn to gold and crumble away

Title: The Fall - is this the Autumn or sort of a crash ? I take it to be the Autumn. Because one of the ines reads "Ready for the colors to burn to gold and crumble away". . . Please elaborate as this might affect a possible translation.
Thank you. :-)

Autumn or crash.. It could be either but I personally (thinking of translating it into Dutch) would settle for 'autumn', but I'm undecided about it. There might be a snag!

I think it could be referring to both
