Trevor Hall – The Lime Tree lyrics

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.

    This song. I've been listening to this for four days straight now, and I still don't fully understand the lyrics. I'm the kind of person who doesn't especially listen to the lyrics though, the music alone is enough for me. The way it starts so peaceful and calm, like everything is fine. But what gets me the most is the way it develops to a voice full of incomprehension and impotency. And at the end, the music ends the same as how it started. I can relate to the feelings throughout this song, and that's what gets me. I have dealt with loss, more than once unfortunately. In the beginning I was Constantly trying to reassure myself that everything is fine, because I did not want to face the chagrin. But as we all know, it's impossible to avoid reality. At some point I had to face the facts, and as I did I became mad. I am convinced that every bit of anger comes from incomprehension, and that was what I felt during this song. But as time passes, it gets better, it doesn't hurt as much as it did, and I made peace with it. This may not be the way the author meant it, it's just how I interpreted it.

    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.
