about

A leaf leaves it's home.

lyrics

Family of green. Home of grey.
Set to leave home someday.
Falling so the sun can see me.
Falling but finally free.

Falling Leaf, you should fall far away.
Let the sun see you sitting in its’ rays.
Falling leaf I don’t know what to say.
Maybe one day we’ll have some words relay.

A mighty oak. A cowardly leaf.
One in the same, both seek relief.
I’ve taken, you gave.
But now I long for my grave.
I leave you for the ground.
To hear some other sound.

Falling Leaf, you should fall far away.
Let the sun see you sitting in its’ rays.
Falling leaf I don’t know what to say.
Maybe one day we’ll have some words relay.

Please, let me go there.
Let me be the one who finally knows where
I can’t just sit and stare.
This moment is more rare than gold out of thin air.
