LEAVES ON THE LINE

BY Richard Sutton

Sensing eyes, looking at me

Staring like I’m an unsolved mystery

Just living life behind a blocked up door

 

Feeding lies, faking a smile

Not knowing that I’m in denial

It pulls me back from all the dreams that I ever knew

 

Like leaves on the line

I'm the slowest train to ride

But now I know, I’ve been blind

Cuz all the leaves just reside

Within my mind

 

I miss the call, but pay for the fee

To scared the world will make a fool of me

Avoiding people, every chance I see

 

Running fast, running from the tears

Making moves that are ruled by fears

I’m just a helpless slave to my anxiety

LEAVES ON THE LINE - Richard Sutton
00:00 / 00:00

Like leaves on the line

I'm the slowest train to ride

But now I know, I’ve been blind

Cuz all the leaves just reside

Within my mind

 

But I can't control this thief

That I call doubt, that you can't see

That broke the will, and split the seams

Of countless human dreams

All the flowing rivers that grew from humble streams

From here, my hope never gleams...

When I see

 

Like leaves on the line

I'm the slowest train to ride

But now I know, I’ve been blind

Cuz all the leaves just reside

Within my mind
