Dying leaves of Dublin 

 

 

When in my Dublin, dead leaves fall on the ground,

Like sorrows in a pond of love

I take a walk and leave behind the town

At night, when moon is shinning up above.

 

I am walking slowly my abandoned street

Who sings for me an old forgotten song

The golden leaves are down at my feet

The song I hear is sad and long.

 

I talk to God to tell me where to go

To light for me a candle up ahead

I know he s busy, he has leaves to blow

But maybe He could hear the tears I shed.

 

I call him once again to ask him why

He calls the leaves to die as I depart

He has no answer and he has to lie

But it s ok; at least I see him try.

 

I catch a leave that spirals down so slow,

Eternal flame is still burning in my chest.

I hold it for a second then I let it go.

And just like me she is tired and she wants to rest.

 

 

There was a town that once it held me tight

Its diamond arms so wrapped around my soul

But now, another shadow is searching for a light

Walking the street where all the leaves are blown.
