about

Another track with lyrics by Justin Herndon. It was our third collaboration. The first attempt wasn't so successful, but this one turned out alright.

lyrics

You nearly had me one time,
I thought your love was sublime
But every thing that you said,
Just made me wish I was dead.

And so I called you my friend,
You say that this is at an end,
And these new friends that you made,
Have only made you afraid.

And I hope it's for good,
Yeah, I hope it's for good,
Because I've seen it before,
still came back for more,
You say you're ready,
But you're so unsteady,
You're just a leaf in the wind,
don't come back again!
Oh, no!

I bet your friends don't know
Your name's an alter-ego
You could have changed it again
But you keep sayin' you're him

Said you had left this scene
Two years ago, breakin' clean,
A week ago you stopped by
To bid your final goodbye,

And I hope it's for good,
Yeah, I hope it's for good,
Because I've seen it before,
still came back for more,
You say you're ready,
But you're so unsteady,
You're just a leaf in the wind,
don't come back again!
Oh, no!

You say you're ready,
But you're so unsteady,
You're just a leaf in the wind,
don't come back again!
Oh, no!

One day your friends won't be there,
And then nobody will care,
They'll see what's really inside:
The dirty secrets you hide.

But don't come crawling to me,
I have declared myself free,
I've pushed you out of my heart,
And now I'm glad we're apart.

And I hope it's for good,
Yeah, I hope it's for good,
Because I've seen it before,
still came back for more,
You say you're ready,
But you're so unsteady,
You're just a leaf in the wind,
don't come back again!
Oh, no!
