Like a Leaf

David Gillis

Like a leaf, falling down – piling up, on the ground. Wind picks up, blows around – in a swirl, through the town Higher than, a skyscraper I see you in an office filing papers I see you, you see me, as a leaf

Dying wind, it gets dark – finally rest in a park Spend the night, with the leaves – rise again, above the trees I spot a kite, follow it

Like a leaf, falling down – piling up, on the ground. Wind picks up, blows around – in a swirl, through the town Higher than, a skyscraper I see you in an office filing papers I see you, you see me, as a leaf

Dying wind, it gets dark – finally rest in a park Spend the night, with the leaves – rise again, above the trees I spot a kite, follow it down There you hold, the string from the ground I see you, you see me, as a leaf

Then I’m carried, by a beak – to a lonley, mountain peak Up above, the village sky – I see lights, and wonder why I am here, you are there. How the world can be so unfair? Pray the wind, carries me, like a leaf

Then I float, as sure is sure – and make it to, your front door You sweep me up, off of my feet – I am shaking, like a leaf I am caught, I am found out Stand exposed, with my heart out Then you see, the real me, not a leaf

And your heart, it shakes too, like a leaf
