Track Name: Leaves
Leave me in the night-time
Watch me follow straight lines below
And I will go through all this
Just for you

A just intention
Never question questions my dear
And I will go through all this
Just for you

Just for you
Just for you
Make me new

Feeling so hopeless
As faith comes between us
I wander in wonder
And pray that no one ever

Leaves me in the night-time
Hanging on a lifeline so dear
And I will go through all this
Just for you

And I won’t mention just how much
This tension it burnt
My wings and left me hanging
Just for you

Just for you
Just for you
Just for you

No one will go
No one will follow
I’m falling so slowly
Just for you
