"Leaf Has Veins" as written by and Christopher Dedrick....
Da da da

A leaf has veins
Da, da, da
Don't talk, just look

Ba ba ba

Went for a walk that has no destination
It's much better like this for
Ellen, bruce, sandy and chris

Da da da

Went for a walk that has no destination
It's much better like this for
Ellen bruce, sandy and chris

Da da da

A bunch of words
A good excuse to write some music

Da da da

    General CommentThis song is a prayer to life and creation.

    So few words---So much meaning!

    The central image of veins in a leaf signifies the link between living things and suggests we are all connected at a very basic level.

    The walk "that has no destination" is like our existence in this world, where we cannot truly perceive what ultimately lies beyond life, making our "destination" seem undetermined.

    The writing of music is a human act of creation. Creation is something done by ALL living things. It is the function of life to create, on some level (nests, habitat, offspring, art).
    There is little or no reason needed for creation ("a bunch of words," whatever)-----It is how we are designed, like having veins.

    A very spiritual song, actually, without being at all wordy or preachy.

    And don't forget the advice at the start---"Don't talk, just look"---The best kind of prayer there is.
