lyrics

| Tree Song |

One fall day I sat beneath your withered arms,
The icy chill brought my head to face the sky
And all around the wind was dancing through you without a care,
You kept me breathing strong, you kept me breathing on.

And through the miracles each day,
Even the most horrific ways the world forgets us,
Human to human-
You've always been the warmth I need
The closest pathway to the sea,
Sending all your love through my veins and into me

You're Eucalyptus, Redwood, Cedar, Ginkgo, Oak, and Palm
Pine, Willow, Avocado, Orange, I have seen them all
As I was left still breathing, breathing in the air,
The air that we once breathed together there

Looking out as I continued on along the heavy banks that lined the river, Singing me their blues
Up and away I saw the day was fleeting,
The sky so full and stretched until it's colors grew much softer,
I knew I'd lost her.

And through the miracles each day
Even the most horrific ways the world forgets us,
Human to human-
You've always been the warmth I need
The closest pathway to the sea,
Sending all you love through my veins and into me

You're Eucalyptus, Redwood, Cedar, Ginkgo, Oak, and Palm
Pine, Willow, Avocado, Orange, I have seen them all
As I was left still breathing, breathing in the air,
The air that we once breathed together there

And as that silver sliver of the moon declares its place amongst the stars,
Your branches keep me safe, they give me faith -
Cause just like you I've lost my leaves,
Left them behind for somebody that may never know time moved too slow for me too handle.

Still you kept roots in all the ground that I have ever ventured on
You built a home on all the earth I'll ever walk upon
And all the memories of him left there still fester in the air,
An east coast breeze blown through the trees is where he'll always be...

You're Eucalyptus, Redwood, Cedar, Ginkgo, Oak, and Palm
Pine, Willow, Avocado, Orange, I have seen them all
As I was left still breathing, breathing in the air,
The air that we once breathed together there
