lyrics

‘Willow Tree’
Words and Music by Thom Carter. Copyright Verlaine Records 2010.

Willow Tree, Willow Tree,
Willow Tree Willow Tree,
Hanging out into the water of the passing stream,

Willow Tree, Willow Tree,
Willow Tree Willow Tree,
Oh, you could sell some stories ‘bout the way things used to be,

Window Pane, Window of Pain,
Window Pane, Window of Pain,
So many times I’ve looked on through the glass that’s in your frame.


It’s not hard, anymore, to see,
It’s not hard, anymore, to leave,
To leave you, Willow Tree.


Willow Tree, Willow Tree,
Willow Tree Willow Tree,
How long have you been growing there?
Growing there by me?

Willow Tree, Willow Tree,
Willow Tree Willow Tree,
Oh, I’d like to talk now with you,
But you never seem to speak.


Little bird passes by, on the wing,
With a soul and a heart, written on the wind,

Am I happy now?
I’m happy that she sings.

Singing out her song,
Singing loud and clean.


Willow Tree, Willow Tree,
Willow Tree Willow Tree,
The brown of your bark,
The green of your leaves,

Willow Tree, Willow Tree,
Willow Tree Willow Tree,
Oh, I used to play around you,
Wonder how deep those roots might be?

Oh, I used to play around you,
Wondering how deep those roots might be.


Oh, Willow Tree,
Oh, Willow Tree,
Still wondering just how deep those roots would be.
