Hootie & The Blowfish – Not Even The Trees lyrics
Alone as I sit and watch the trees
Won't you tell me if I scream will they bend down and listen to me?
* And it makes me wonder, if I'll know the words when you come
Or will you laugh at me
Or will I run
Little boy says to me,
"Where you goin' now son?"
I said, "I don't know where I'm goin' boy
I only know where I'm from"
And it makes me wonder
If the stars shine when my eyes close
Or does my brothers heart cry
I don't know
I'm a stranger in my home
Now that everybody's gone
Someone please talk to me
'Cause I feel you cry
And you're sitting with him
And I know I'll never see you again
Lying down in Charleston under the Carolina sky
You see I'm tired of feeling this pain
I'm tired of living my own little lie
And it makes me wonder
When I see you in my dreams
Does it mean anything
Are you trying to talk to me
I'm a stranger in my home
Tell me are you feeling alone
Someone tell me what to do
'Cause I'm feeling strong
And I wonder how you feel
Do he realize my pain is for real
I see you in my dreams
And I wonder if you're looking down at me
And smiling right now
I wanna know if it's true
When he looks at me
Won't you tell me
Does he realize he came down here
And he took you too soon
And now my days are short an my nights are long
I lay down with memories of you that keep me going on, going on
And it makes me wonder as I sit and stare
Will I see your face again?
Tell me, do you care?
I'm a stranger in my home
Living life on my own
Right now I just can't see
'Cause I'm feeling weak
And my soul begins to bleed
And no one is listening to me, not even the trees

    This song is about the very depths of emotional heartbreak that one experiences when the loss of someone they truly loved has been called home to heaven I can so closely relate to every line he runs through his head when he finally comes to the realization that wow she's gone in this case it's a reference to his mother's passing. For me I relate it to my father's passing and when he sings this I find myself going wow I totally can understand the sadness and wonder if I'm ever gonna even see him again I have faith I will but it does run through my head word for word like ...
    "You see I'm tired of feeling this pain; I'm tired of living my own little lie
    And it makes me wonder... when I see you in my dreams
    Does it mean anything?
    Are you trying to talk to me"
