All About Trees

Someone has to pay it
‘Cause this blood flows so deep
Tireless roots never quit
But their lives seem all too cheap

Embracing the world
Exhaling us our life
Their eyes old and gnarled
We can give back, all our strife

Their color paints the sky
For the birds who never fly
But our love for their beauty
Has long since died

Sun’s unbroken light, a dusty ray
Makes the world seem a bit too grey
They don’t mind, they’ll take the blame
To let us continue this silly game
