Phish – Leaves Lyrics


[Verse 1]
Someone’s always telling me to breathe
The wind is always whispering through the leaves
It sings to the world
They cling to the world
I listen and believe
[Verse 2]
The music stops and echoes linger on
(The secret to the kingdom was conferred)
I’m waiting ’til you sing me one more song
(The messenger revealed the ruler’s—)
You promised the moon
But I need a tune
For notes are rarely wrong
[Chorus]
We built a kingdom out of lies
And then we blindly fanned the fire
We warmed our hands with glowing coals
But now they rain down from the skies
Rising volume, muffled moans
Thoughts conveyed in undertones
We built a kingdom out of lies
[Verse 3]
Moonlight dances softly on the leaves
(Moonlight dances softly on the leaves)
A message in the pattern that it weaves
(Message in the pattern that it weaves)
It urges me now
It’s pleading somehow
Telling me to breathe
[Instrumental Break]
[Chorus]
We built a kingdom out of lies
And then we blindly fanned the fire
We warmed our hands with glowing coals
But now they rain down from the skies
Rising volume, muffled moans
Thoughts conveyed in undertones
We built a kingdom out of lies
[Verse 4]
Moonlight dances softly on the leaves
(Moonlight dances softly on the leaves)
A message in the pattern that it weaves
(A message in the pattern that it weaves)
It urges me now
It’s pleading somehow
Telling me to breathe
[Outro]
Breathe
Breathe
Breathe
Breathe
Breathe
Breathe
Breathe
Breathe
