Little emerald leaf and little auburn branch
Connected to a larger one
The larger one supported me
And cared for me throughout it all
Through the crystal tears when they brought her home
And how distant he was from all
From the tinkling laughter of my little voice
When I was lifted high above you almost touching the stars
You were always there for me and I for you
But now another has claimed my heart
'Tis the sea, wild and true
Nevermore shall I walk unburdened
'Neath your leafy bosom
For now I shall walk on crystal sands
And head to the melody of the sea.
