English translation

Leaves Boy

Leaves boy goes out of the house very early to work.
He gets on a train and during the mornings sings while he watches people eat.
 
Trees fall behind the windows, clouds leave, and there isn't enough time.
Another night will arrive to have dinner again.
 
Leaves boy sings at night time, he plays cds to sleep.
He has leaves in his pockets and he uses them to write.
 
Snow that falls behind the windows, clouds leave and there isn't enough time.
We have to start packing the luggage to fly again.
 
I believe it's best only to be good friends. Nothing better, nothing better.
That way years will pass and we keep on, without a love, without a goodbye.
I believe it's best only to be good friends. Nothing better, nothing better.
That way years will pass and we keep on, without a love, without a goodbye.
Without a love, without a goodbye.
Without a love, without a goodbye.
Without a love, without a goodbye.

Would love some imput on this translation, particularly for the following lines:
"Niño hojas canta de noche, pone discos para dormir."
"Hay que empezar las maletas, para volar otra vez."
