lyrics

Up in the treehouse, breeze swinging low
I can see all the people, restless below
They move with such purpose, unlike me
I retired from life to live in the trees

The townsfolk below me continue to walk
Never dream I’m above, hearing their talk
Stay hidden from sight, it’s easier you see
The world is so simple, up in the trees

Reality passes me by, but that’s just fine
A quiet observer of others’ lives
My home is in the trees,
and all that changes, are the leaves

I left the pavements so long ago
With a powerful longing not to know
It’s only from a distance that it all makes sense
I stretch to the sky, but feel so low

Reality passes me by, but that’s just fine
A quiet observer of others’ lives
My home is in the trees,
and all that changes, are the leaves
