colour compassion

catch me i am falling through the leaves
catch me i am falling through the web i weave

tripped over my naïvete
and landed near you
i was naked
you gave me a coat
the weave is intricate
the colour compassion
i rolled up the sleeves
they were a little big
and buttoned down
i left my feet bare / bear
r so i could be in touch

how did i go so far away
to be distant from my youth?
sifting through the sand now
searching for eternal truth

my doubts and fears are falling
through the holes in the pockets
i sewed only one and filled it
with paper for you

i am growing into the sleeves
my feet are still bare / bear

catch me i am falling through the leaves
catch me i am falling through the web i weave
