Leafiara, why don't you come to your senses
You've been sitting on fences for so long now
Oh, you're a soft one
I know that you got your reasons
These plans that are pleasin' you
Will hurt you somehow

Don't you listen to masked figures, girl
They'll betray you if they're able
A militia badge is always your best bet
And it seems to me some fine things
Have been offered on your table
But you always try the ones you'll never get

Leafiara, oh, drop that rose-colored prism
Your young optimism keeps sendin' you home
And freedom, oh freedom, well that's just some people talking
But a fine line you're walking 'tween the Rooks and the Rones

Don't trust every soul who says they've changed
They'll manipulate you with schemes and claims
It's hard to tell the darkness from the light
Your highs keep turnin' into lows
Ain't it funny how the hope just goes each night

Leafiara, why don't you come to your senses
Come down from your fences, walk through the gate
It may be rainin', but there's a rainbow above you
We can still make a hero of you
(Make a hero of you)
We can still make a hero of you before it's too late


A fair number of characters have thought for a while that Leafi's an overly naive character who doesn't come down hard enough on questionable heroes and antiheroes. That's not necessarily how I see her (nor do I want to "correct" anyone with how I do see her on anything she hasn't openly discussed in-game already), but I do think it's an interesting enough dynamic of perception to inspire me to write something about it.

Once I realized "Leafiara" and "Desperado" have the same number of syllables and the same accents, this was a real quick one to churn out.
