Leja - Die Heuwels Fantasties
Album: Die Heuwels Fantasties



Leja is one of those songs that make you look back over your life,
your love. And restates what we already know...that our mothers always
see our promise, no matter how old or young we are – they always have
hope.

This is a great song for a beginner with only three simple chords. The
guitar riffs are simple as well, not requiring you to move too much up
and down the fretboard.

Here are the chords used in the song for quick reference:
       A      D       E      
e:-----0-------2-------0-------
B:-----2-------3-------0-------
G:-----2-------2-------1-------
D:-----2-------0-------2-------
A:-----0---------------2-------
E:-----0---------------0-------

Have fun! Please let me know if there any changes/suggestions you have
to make the tab better,

======================================================================
Here is an English translation for all of those people out there like
myself, who dig the music, but are new to the language:
======================================================================

Leja
I do not know whether I can see here
I will ever have enough money
The nights are cold
In the winter

When I saw you for the first time
Leja, I cannot remember how it felt
Roads remain wet
In the winter

BRIDGE:
In your mother's eyes
We were teenagers
We could believe in the things above
In your mother's eyes, I wanted to see
And I wanted to believe

CHORUS:
But times have changed
And we are not getting any younger
I can no longer keep
Our last evening flows as water flows
On the grass, on the grass

Leja
Put it down
As it was, as it was
Then we can
Leja

But you're just pen on a napkin
I already had again sometime forget

The over flamboyance stranded
Just like derived Atheism
I set myself up here
In the story written out

BRIDGE:
In your mother's eyes
We were teenagers
We could believe in the things above
In your mother's eyes, I wanted to see
And I wanted to believe

CHORUS:
But times have changed
And we are not getting any younger
I can no longer keep
Our last evening flows as water flows
On the grass, on the grass

Leja
Put it down
As it was, as it was
Then we can
Leja
