lyrics

Shedding skin and bones
In the lake they flow
Across the water reflecting the clouds

Just pick up the leaves for me now
To cover my soul
From the storm so violent, so loud

Why don't you come with me so i can show you
All that you said would be, but only i knew
All the miles and miles that i walked for you.
Would you be so kind to put that on my grave too?

I'll waited, all the seasons have passed
I've heard all the excuses you've used
And all that you said would be,
You never ended up doing for me

White storm, I told you I know nothing at all
White clouds, I see white I see white I see white and nothing else

Why don't you come with me so I can show you
All that you said would, but only I knew
All the miles and miles that I walked for you
Would be so kind to put that on my grave too?


Why don't you come with me so I can show you..
