David Gray – The Sapling lyrics
[Verse 1]
Gonna lay down in the grass
And watch that acorn split in two
Slowly take root
While the clock upon the wall makes idle boasts
And my mind's out cruising silent coasts

[Verse 2]
Though the ghosts of better days might twist my eyes
Gonna stand my ground, watch that sapling rise
Just as long as I’ve the strength, well, I'll raise that flag
Like a wisp of cloud from a mountain crag

[Chorus]
Now, this is awkward
I kept it bottled up too long

[Verse 3]
Years like tiny drops of rain on a glassy lake
Leaving nought but circles in their wake
Though we barely comprehend what the question is
Only know for certain, the answer’s yes

[Chorus]
Now this is awkward
Really don’t know where to being

I kept it bottled up too long
(I know that feeling too, yeah)
Don’t ask me where the time has gone
(I know that feeling too, yeah)
Days I can’t tell no right from wrong
(I know that feeling too, yeah)
I kept it bottled up too long
(Know that feeling, know that feeling)
Tell me about it, tell me about it, tell me about it
(Like sunlight breaking through, yeah)
Tell me about it, tell me about it, tell me about it
(I know that feeling too)

[Outro]
Gonna lay down in the grass
And watch that acorn split in two
Slowly take root
