Once I ran like the wildest horse.
I reached up high and I clinched my fist.
What happened then goes just like this,
Oh the tender branch is gonna fall.

I was young and I thought it brave,
Fighting to find the mystery's face.
You got to give it a gentler chase,
Cause oh the tender branch is gonna fall.

Sometimes you fall up these stairs, but it's a long time 'fore you know.
No matter where my heart is now, there's a long, long way to go.

There is a church in St Sulpice.
I've seen the pilgrims come to pray.
I'm gonna lean in hard on that grace,
Cause oh the tender branch is gonna fall.
