One, two, three
Counting out the signs we see
The tall buildings
Fading in the distance
Only dots on a map
Four, five, six
The two of us a perfect fit
You're all mine, all mine

And all I can say
Is you blow me away

Like an apple on a tree
Hiding out behind the leaves
I was difficult to reach
But you picked me
Like a shell upon a beach
Just another pretty piece
I was difficult to see
But you picked me
Yeah you picked me

So softly
Rain against the windows
And the strong coffee
Warming up my fingers
In this fisherman's house
You got me
Searched the sand
And climbed the tree
And brought me back down

And all I can say
Is you blow me away

Like an apple on a tree
Hiding out behind the leaves
I was difficult to reach
But you picked me
Like a shell upon a beach
Just another pretty piece
I was difficult to see
But you picked me
Yeah you picked me

    wow pmi, thank you captain obvious. i mean it must have been so hard to figure that stuff out, the fact that you just took the poetry out of the lyrics.

    gorgeous!
    in german: wie ein Apfel am Baum,der sich hinter den Blättern versteckt
    ich war schwer zu erreichen,aber du hast mich geplückt
    wie eine Muschel am Strand,nur ein weiteres schönes Stück
    ich war schwer zu sehn,aber du hast mich aufgehoben...

    It exemplifies what i want; someone who sees me for my unique qualities, frailties, strengths and vulnerabilities... And of course picks me, not in spite of them but because they have contributed to making me who i am. And i pick her back for the same reasons.

    "like an apple on a tree- hiding out behind the leaves" is basically saying that shes a hidden gem in all the ordinary. "just another pretty piece" also refers to how shes just another person, not significant in anyother way, yet out of all that, shes still "the chosen one. " :)
