Maple Leaves is an EP released by Jens Lekman. The songs on this EP can also be found on Lekman's 2005 release, Oh You're So Silent Jens.

The title song "Maple Leaves" centers on a hallmark of Lekman's lyrics, puns and an advanced level of understanding of English idioms. It is a melancholic love song or reflection on lost love about the singer misunderstanding a woman's ennui or disillusionment primarily indicated by her saying "make believe" and the singer optimistically hearing it as "maple leaves".
