Leaves That Are Green

Lyrics

I was twenty-one years when I wrote this song.
I'm twenty-two now but I won't be for long
Time hurries on.
And the leaves that are green turn to brown,

Slugbutter-D o n o , I couldn't help but to agree. the very same thought came to my mind the first time I heard it. and the message is essentially the same.
kind of like Gordon Lightfoot's Leaves of Grass but a little happier sounding...
LOVE this song. Very poetic.
Nature's first green is gold.
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her first leave's a flower,
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief.
So dawn goes down to day,
Nothing gold can stay.


~ Robert Frost

(I think this is a poem that darn well must've influenced the lyrics of this song!)
Isaiah 40 - ppl are like grass... so to speak.
