I spark a match and watch the candle burn.
The wick runs out and then love takes it's turn.
On fallen angels and broken sounds, we will last past the final round.
It took awhile for you to find me. (find me.)
But I was hiding in the lime tree. (lime tree.)
Above the city in the rain cloud. (rain cloud.)
I poked a hole and watched it drain out.
(I watched it drain out, watched it drain out.)
And parallel to the city streets. (ugh.)
Our broken crowns beneath our feet.
But as we walk across the diamonds. (diamonds.)
We know that love is always shining. (shining.)
So save me love, save me all the time.
I'll wash you down with a simple sip of wine.
Toast my glass to all my loved ones.
To let them know that the stars, well they still shine.
It took awhile for you to find me. (find me.)
But I was hiding in the lime tree. (lime tree.)
Above the city in the rain cloud. (rain cloud.)
I poked a hole and watched it drain out. (drain out.)
It took awhile for you to find me. (find me.)
But I was hinding in the lime tree. (lime tree.)
Above the city in the rain cloud. (rain cloud.)
I poked a hole and watched it drain out. (drain out.)
It took awhile for you to find me. (find me.)
But I was hiding in the lime tree. (lime tree.)
Above the city in the rain cloud. (rain cloud.)
I poked a hole and watched it drain out. (drain out.)
It took awhile for you to find me. (find me.)
I was hiding in the, well I was hiding in the.
Above the city in the rain cloud. (rain cloud.)
I poked a hole and watched it drain out. (drain out.)
Took awhile for you to find me. (find me, find me, find me, find me.)
Ohhh ohhh yeahh yeahh yeahh.
Well I was hiding in the, I was hiding in the lime tree, lime tree, lime tree, lime tree.
Took awhile for you to find me. (find me.)
Ohh yeahh.
It took awhile for you to find me. (find me.)
I spark a match, and watch the candle burn.
The wick runs out and then love takes it's turn.
On fallen angels and broken sounds, we will last past the final round.

    To me the lime tree is the bitter sour of life. I was hiding in the lime tree, means i was hiding in the troubles of daily life. Hiding away from the pain. But she found him, and the hole ripped in the rain clouds was all the saddness, bitterness, and lost feelings that come with life poured away. Still waiting for someone to find me.

    Lasting past the final round. Finding love. Not puppy love, not lust-love, but the "if i can forget i had plans, i can have more time to spend time with him/her" love. True love. The fulfilled-in-your-heart feeling. Its only hiding until it finds you in the lime tree.

    This song has one of the strongest meanings ever for me. One of my fellow schoolmates and also one of my friends killed himself. He was only 17. He was a great person who came from an absolutely amazing family. I met his mother at his funeral and she is truly something amazing. I love their family to death and they never deserved to have something so horrible happen to them. The lime tree was played at levi's funeral and it has a huge meaning to so many people in this small wyoming town. Levi jared, we know you are always with us and we love you. And you have an amazing family. Love you all.

    About a guy who has been hiding who he truly is, but still looking for love. He finds the girl he wants to be with, but hes not sure she'll accept him for who he really is, so he hides it until he's sure. Then she finds him and still loves him.
