Thread Name: Lyr/Chord Req: Leaves in the Wind
Subject: Lyr Add: LEAVES IN THE WIND
According to Allmusic.com, The Fureys' recording of LEAVES IN THE WIND is on 2 of their albums: "Through the Eyes of an Irishman" (1998) and "May We All Meet Again" (2001).
I haven't heard those, but I heard this. I don't know who wrote it, and I'm not sure it's the same song:
LEAVES IN THE WIND
As sung by Isla Grant on "By Request" (2006)
Memories are all that you have left me.
No more I'll see the love shine in your eyes;
And the tender words you spoke to me so softly
Are as far away as the stars up in the skies.
CHORUS: You're far away from me and I'm so lonely.
Since you left, I'm slowly losing my mind.
It seems like only yesterday I had you with me.
Now you're gone, like leaves in the wind.
How I wish I'd told you all that you have meant to me,
And how much my world revolved around you.
How I hope and pray that where you are you'd hear me now
For without you I don't know what I'll do. CHORUS
Now you are gone, just like leaves in the wind.
