Sun Shines Through the Leaves

by Elizabeth Ramirez, Rex Horan, and Sara Lee


Dee Jay said he’d always be a leader,
He’d say he’d never be a follower.
Dee Jay said who’s my favorite sister?
Vanny, are you gonna make me pancakes?

Sun shines through the leaves, are you watching over me?
Baby face, soul of a man.
Wings of a white dove, a symbol of our love,
Fly away to the promised land.

Dee Jay loved adventure like climbing,
From the rooftop used to jump like Superman
Always good at everything he tried,
Coaching the children in the park.

Sun shines through the leaves, are you watching over me?
Baby face, soul of a man.
Wings of a white dove, a symbol of our love,
Fly away to the promised land.

Dee Jay you taught me how to live life
You showed me that it doesn’t hurt to smile.
Dee Jay, I dream you tell me that you love me,
Know that you’re always in my heart.

Sun shines through the leaves, are you watching over me?
Baby face, soul of a man.
Wings of a white dove, a symbol of our love,
Fly away to the promised land.
