Silver Tree

Created with Sketch.

That smile that disarmed me
For one final time
That was the day
That everything changed in my life

The morning pirouette
Of traffic slipping by
I’m part of the dance
But doing my best to wonder why

No matter how dark the night
The morning always comes
People try to change the world
But nothing ever’s done.
Spoke to you in whispers now
They chilled me to the bone
You kept the perfect distance girl
Not together, and not alone

Sitting by the Silver Tree
Where I heard the stories you told
The leaves have all fallen now
And all that glitters isn’t gold

No matter how dark the night
The morning always comes
People try to change the world
But nothing ever’s done.
Spoke to you in whispers now
They chilled me to the bone
You kept the perfect distance girl
Not together, and not alone

No matter how dark the night
The morning always comes
People try to change the world
But nothing ever’s done.
Spoke to you in whispers now
They chilled me to the bone
You kept the perfect distance girl
Not together, and not alone
