Green Carnation – Sweet Leaf lyrics

Oh sweet leaf
Swaying in the wind
Under stars and moon
And sunrise gloom
Hanging on to the tree that gives you life

Oh sweet leaf
Has your time come?
Will your journey begin?
I'm afraid of falling and falling
With the wind
Away, away from your origins

Oh sweet leaf
Why did you leave?
Why didn't you stay?
How can I be your guardian angel?
When you are away?

Oh dear father
Let me tell you
I'd love to sway in the wind
Under stars and moon
And sunrise gloom
Clinging on to you

Oh dear father
Can't you see?
I'm not running away
I'm just searching for the real me

Oh dear mother
Why do we have to go?
Why don't we stay?
How can we be yours?
When we are always away?

Oh sweet leaf
When your time comes
