Outside my window is a tree
Outside my window is a tree
There only for me and it stands in the gray of the city
No time for pity for the tree or me

There is a world of pain
In the falling rain around me

Is there a reason for today?
Is there a reason for today?
Do you remember? I can hear all the cries of the city
No time for pity for a growing tree

There is a world of pain
In the falling rain around me

Outside my window is a tree
Outside my window is a tree
There only for me and it stands in the gray of the city
No time for pity for the tree or me

There is a world of pain
In the falling rain around me
