Thread Name: Lyr/Chord Req: Leaves in the Wind
Subject: Lyr Add: LEAVES IN THE WIND
According to, 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:

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.
