The Leaves

Post by Tele on Fri Apr 15, 2011 12:21 am



An original song about understanding without acceptance. I hope you enjoy it.

The Leaves

I've been trying to wake her up for years
She stays hidden behind her tears
Paralyzed by all the fear
And we all know how hard it can be

Sleeps mostly on the couch instead
He lives mostly inside his head
It wasn't in what she said
And he knows how hard it can be

I need to move along
Even the leaves have got my heels
I'm too old to keep sitting still
I'm just looking for the water

Done all I can think to do
But there's really no reaching you
If you wont let me
And I know how hard it can be

I'm sorry or not to say
That I'm feeling this way today
It's not the first time
And you know how hard it can be

I need to move along
Even the leaves have got my heels
I'm too old to be sitting still
I keep looking for the water

I've talked till I can say no more
All my words fall to the floor
It's hard to understand
And I guess it always will be

I've been trying to wake her up for years
She stays hidden behind her tears
Hypnotized by all the fear
And we all know how hard it can be

Nice, Mark! I watched it about an hour ago and the tune just keeps playing over and over again in the back of my mind -- very catchy. There's definitely a sadness in the lyrics though.

Is that the new-to-you guitar?

Way to go Mark. The lyrics suck you right in. I agree with WileE that there's some sadness going on there.

Thanks guys.

Yeah WileE thats the one. Needs a new saddle and a fresh set of strings, but what the heck. I thought I'd give it a tune.
