Leaves Don't Drop (They Just Let Go)

This song is by Carrie Newcomer and appears on the album The Geography Of Light (2008).

The truth I learned when I was eight
My dad swam the length of Spirit Lake
Yeah and It must have been a million miles
This I knew was true

My mother sang while hangin' clothes
Her notes weren't perfect heaven knows
Yeah, but heaven opened anyway
This I knew was true

'Cause leaves don't drop they just let go
And make a space for seeds to grow
And every season brings a change
A tree is what a seed contains
To die and live is life's refrain

I left her with some groceries
Said, "Check the oil and call me please"
And she said " Hey, Ma I'll be just fine"
This I knew was true

'Cause leaves don't drop they just let go
And make a space for seeds to grow
And every season brings a change
A tree is what a seed contains
To die and live is life's refrain

I've traveled through my history
From certainty to mystery
God speaks in rhyme in paradox
This I know is true

And finally when my life is through
And what I am not what I do
'Cause it comes down to you and your next breath
This I know is true

'Cause leaves don't drop they just let go
And make a space for seeds to grow
And every season brings a change
A tree is what a seed contains
To die and live is life's refrain
