  1. A Tree

Lyrics

In my dream last night there was a tree
And when I came up to it, its leaves were wilted
No grass or plants were growing by its base
A ring of deadness surrounded it for two feet

And in my dream last night, I tried to help
But the more I tried to help, the more I uprooted it
Its limbs snapped off and its fragile trunk was severed
So I buried it in the ground and let it rot
And deep down in my heart, I know you distrust me
But maybe there is something deeper than that

I can only give you what I have
And I know I tend to be too critical
But it’s only that I don’t want you to leave
Or say to me that I’m not valuable

In my dream last night, there was no key
No compass pointing north to give me direction
And if you help me I’ll be better off
But I’ll never be like someone on TV
I cannot make anything perfectly
And notice this song is not an apology

Cause I can only give you what I have
And I know I tend to be too critical
But it’s only that I don’t want you to leave
Or say to me that I’m not valuable
