There's a shadow
Clinging lyrically by and by
To the devil
On the roadside.

There's an angel
Envious of mystery,
Like young leaves.

There's a void,
Begging desperate as a lie,
For us to make it feel alive,
And waiting on the world to lend a spirit
Truly free and fragile
As young leaves.

There's a scar
That in the dark's an empty hole,
Like a thousand stories
Begging not to go untold.
But that in the light's a hidden dream
For our shallow lives:
To be appeased by nothing more
Than young leaves.
