Track Name: Leaf
Sun’s out peaking through the clouds now
Shines down on the earth
I feel you
Maybe I should forgive myself now
Cause I can’t control the weather
And the wind has blown me around like a leaf

Like a leaf
Like a leaf

I guess I could stop pretending to know exactly where I’m headed
I should quit comparing my life to all of theirs
And surrender to the free fall
To the path that I will land on as a leaf

Hey, this is you at twenty three and today you’re happy
It’s so beautiful out
You had energy for once, so you took a walk
Somewhere along you felt an overwhelming sense of gratitude
You thanked the Lord for the life you’d been given
For how good it felt to take a deep breathe
And for everyone you’d met that taught you to live

I’m writing you to remind you of the gift you are
And don’t forget to breathe
