Carrie Newcomer – There Is A Tree lyrics
Last night I dreamed you very near
Though the night was dark beyond the glass
I knew you'd left before I woke
But you'd fogged the window when you passed

The air was still and smelled like rain,
Though I'd never known so dry a spell
And what I heard there in the dark,
Are the secrets I will never tell?

There is a tree beyond the world
In it's ancient roots a song is curled
I'm the fool whose life's been spent
Between what's said and what is meant

I didn't mean what went so wrong
Some things I wish I didn't know
I've always lived inside my head
And often utterly alone

I will be a pillow for your head
You can make me promises you can't keep
And I'll believe each word you've said
And hum to you while you sleep


You took me by my shaking hand,
Laughed at me and closed the door,
Put your hands to my waist,
And waltzed rue round the kitchen floor


So I will wander without fail
In circles that grow ever wide
The sky expands and then exhales
With an ache that never subsides
