lyrics

I am a leaf and I travel down winding paths
With a home on a river that sinks with every spring
Smiles all around like guns loaded with laughs
Lives from the barrels of the faces on a wing
Where the sun still speaks of a breeze that can sting

If you're a rock and you stay with the one that you love
I'll leave you steady through the thunder and the rain
To pour someday on a child and a dove
Bound to the city from the branch where I came
On the heels of a century but I'll always be the same

Oh what is the colour of change when you are free?
Oh what is the colour of change when you have been
silent and rearranged?… but now i'm born again

I am a leaf and I travel down dirty streets
With a home on my back and shoes on my feet
Smiles all around like guns loaded with love
The bruise of a kiss on the lips i'm thinking of
How does it feel when you're living from above?
