Leaf Off / The Cave
José González Lyrics


Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out

Why can't you take the leaf off your mouth?
Now that you have the facts on your side
Take a moment to reflect where you're from
Let reason guide you,
See old tracks take you out from the dark
See old tracks lead you up to the stars

Why can't you take the leaf off your mouth?
Now that you have the facts on your side
Take a moment to reflect where you're going
Let reason guide you,
See old tracks take you out from the dark
See old tracks lead you up to the stars

Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out

Why can't you take the leaf off your mouth?
Now that you have the facts on your side
Take a moment to reflect who we are
Let reason guide you,
See old tracks lead you out from the dark
Have a life its life, work makes up you and I
What it takes this right, when we need to survive
Yeah we flourish and die, what it means to be alive
What it means to be alive

Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out
Let the life lead you out

Jose, the fact that there are people like you in this world, so talented, so humble, all while being so deservedly successful, is just a wonderful thing. I feel like the world today is saturated with so much bullshit, so much nonsense coming from media and the fast-paced, profit-driven culture we live in, that too many talented people like yourself never achieve the success they deserve.  That you have somehow managed to be so gifted, so positive, and so driven to create beautiful things, and at the same time be so successful in pursuing what you love, is a sort of modern miracle.  A real-Earth miracle, the kind achieved by people, by human beings of flesh and blood.  As I think of the countless talented, passionate and deserving individuals, people who are artists, writers, scientists, musicians, leaders, and other creators and contributors who will never achieve success, I am grateful that you and others like you exist to remind us of the full extent of human potential.  I'm looking forward to the new album.  See you in New York in April!

This song has brought such happiness to me. As a free thinker, I have at many times felt alone. This song is a hug, and a reminder that it's okay to follow a path of logic and reason, even if you're alone on that path. How beautiful it is that we all exist. Some people go through life so wrapped up in petty unimportant things that they never even realize just how remarkable the odds were for us to exist in the first place. To me, the point of life is to find happiness, whatever that may be. We have the opportunity to enjoy life during our short time here. I will be checking out my local chapter of Sunday Assembly. Thank you, José.

Logic and reason contradicts that we all live...down syndrome for example. What's so logic about deciding to put someone on this planet who gets put behind. Deliberately choosing to keep a kid with down syndrome should be counted as child abuse. It's incredibly selfish and simply loathsome
Good song though.

Which ultimately means nothing in a materialistic universe. Secular humanist ideas only go so far.

If you were a “free thinker”, you wouldn’t believe anything.

Thank you for your comment softlysoaringmelody. I know people just occasionally post their true thoughts for fun and more for themselves than recongition after listening to a good song, but this really framed the song for me in my head. I was feeling the same but didn't have the words for it, but you did. Thank you. Thank you.
