530 – Simon and Garfunkel – Leaves that are green (1966)

Escrita Paul Simon, foi gravada em 14 de dezembro de 1965 e lançada no disco Sounds of silence, em 17 de janeiro de 1966.

A frase que abre a música é bem interessante. I was 21 years when I wrote this song, I am 22 now, but I won't be for long. Fala sobre o tempo, com uma poesia muito interessante. Tudo muda com o tempo.

Uma vez o meu coração estava cheio do amor de uma garota, eu a mantive perto, mas ela desapareceu na noite, assim como um poema que eu quis escrever...

A letra:

I was twenty-one years when I wrote this song
I'm twenty-two now, but I won't be for long
Time hurries on
And the leaves that are green turn to brown
And they whither with the wind
And they crumble in your hand

Once my heart was filled with love of a girl
I held her close, but she faded in the night
Like a poem I meant to write
And the leaves that are green turn to brown
And they wither with the wind
And they crumble in your hand

I threw a pebble in a brook
And watched the ripples run away
And they never made a sound
And the leaves that are green turn to brown
And they wither with the wind
And they crumble in your hand
Hello, Hello, Hello, Hello
Good-bye, Good-bye
Good-bye, Good-bye
That's all there is

And the leaves that are green turn to brown
