Cat Stevens – King Of Trees lyrics

He was the king of trees
Keeper of the leaves
A deep green god
of young, love-stained memory
We used to meet by him
Far from the hustling town
I loved you
Now they've come to cut you down
.. Down

He was the guardian of days
We held the same
Beneath the shade he gave
Shelter from the rain
Oh lord how it's empty now
With nothing save the breeze
Now they've come to burn the leaves
Don't burn the leaves

And if my mind breaks up
In all so many ways
I know the meaning of
The words "I love you"
And if my body falls inside
An early grave
The forest and the evergreens
Are coming to take me back
So slowly as I roll
Down the track

The forest and the evergreens
Are coming to take me back
The forest and the evergreens
Are coming to take me back
Please take me back

He was the king of trees
Keeper of the glades
The way he enlightened my life
Makes me so amazed
We used to meet by him
Many years ago
I love you
Now they've come to lay the road
Don't lay the road
