lyrics

The Leafy Song

Once I was a leaf I was a happy leaf
I was bright and green
Hanging with the squirrellies, flirting with the birdies,
And waving at the kids on the street


I was a happy leaf, bright and green …


Then something happened, started taking for granted
The daily grind of happy things
I curse the day I ever craved a fine adventure
And shook myself loose of that tree


‘Cause now, a not so happy leaf, not so bright and green
Turning with each breeze, a not so happy leaf


Learning about tumbling down, learning about hitting the ground …


There’ve been wild nights on fleeting gusts of raging joy
And there’s been flying high like when a girl true loves a boy
But mostly it’s dirt and concrete …

And you’re the North wind blowing home, sing my darling surf the storm
There’s no better way to go Than with the North wind blowing home …
