From the recording Journey to Me
Leaves – Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney
It’s me, I’m alone under this tree watching the leaves as they fall onto me. I’m aware of this diamond solitaire and I’m aware of luck and maybe that’s me. Inside the ground is where it all started but leaves will fall off one day, but you know it’s ok cause they’ll grow back again. It’s me, I’m falling apart this dying tree. I’m dead and diseased and they’re walking on me. Sour grapes or under ripe oranges. The bitterness will convert to rot if not picked. Inside my soul, I’m fine but I’m scattered. Just taking some time to put this puzzle in place. It will be completed one day. It’s me, I’m lying here next to seven leaves. I look to my right and smile at them.
