Leave your body behind you

Leave Your Body Behind You"

Child of Eden your time is short,
You can't leave with more than you've brought.
Love given lightly can never be owned,
A thing we feel but can never hold.

You leave your body behind you,
When you leave this place,
You leave your body behind you,
And you make a space.

Kindness should be a way of life,
Not something you have to think about twice.
All you will be remembered for,
Is what folks say when you walk out the door.

You leave your body behind you,
When you leave this place,
You leave your body behind you,
And you make a space.

Is there anyone?
Is there anyone?
Is there anyone?
Is there anyone?

You leave your body behind you,
When you leave this place,
You leave your body behind you,
And you make a space.

Leave your body behind you,
Leave your body behind you,
Leave your body behind you,
Unchanged.

Is there anyone?
Is there anyone?
Is there anyone?
Is there anyone?

Leave your body behind you,
Leave your body behind you,
Leave your body behind you,
Leave your body behind you…

    love the lyrics – feels like I should consume large amounts of toxic substances before enjoying the music…
    ‘You leave your body behind you,
    And you make a space.’

    I don’t think of it this way nearly often enough….
