Try Tree

Tree, you’ve no choice
You have to stay
You can’t move on now
Still, there are options
And one’s to live
And one’s to die now

I can see all the reasons why you’d choose the easy way out
But still I’m hoping for you to hang on and to try
Try, try, try

All you can do is stay in your spot
And be the best In the nicest way
All you can do is be cool When it is hot
And try to be happy

Try to stay, there’s always a way
Try to stay, try, try, try

‘Cause look around all your brothers and sisters
Spread their branches easily
With their feet happily stuck in the ground
Now they must’ve found peace in that, without regret
And they aim to be the best they possibly can
Things could be worse than that
Things could be worse than that

Don’t die, please give it another try
Try, try, try

Oh I wonder

Oh I wonder am I ever gonna learn
Oh I wonder will I keep doing it if I get burned
Oh I have learned much but not nearly enough
Oh I have learned that I tend to forget
I tend to forget

Oh I wonder am I ever gonna see
Oh I wonder will things flow pleasantly
Oh some things go well but not all of them and
Oh I should learn more but I do get bored

Teach me everything
Oh I wanna learn
I wanna remember things
Teach me everything
Oh I wanna learn
I wanna remember things

Oh I wonder will I ever stand in line
Oh I wonder with this loopy brain of mine
Oh I have learned things but not everything
Oh I have been shown, it’s ongoing

Teach me everything
Oh I wanna learn
I wanna remember things
Teach me everything
Oh I wanna learn
I wanna remember things

It's all good

I walk – I don’t speak
I breath in deep
All the smells
How can it be

Now I’ve talked to goats
And I walked many roads
But here it seems I’ve come home with you
Oeh… It’s all good

In the flow – Let it go
It’s all good
In the flow – Let it go
It’s all good

I think far to much
But not when we touch
It’s a glow
Coming through me

Light trickles through the roof
I don’t need more proof
My head is open, my heart is all there just for you
Oeh… It’s all good

In the flow – Let it go
It’s all good
In the flow – Let it go
It’s all good

Everything

Open wide and say aah
I wanna see what’s inside of you
I wanna know about what you do
And what’s your favourite time of the year?

Breath in and breath out
I wanna hear your heart beating
I wanna know if your lungs can sing
And what’s your favourite song to sing along to?

Open wide and say aah
Need to examine both your lips
Might need to ask our mom for tips
What’s your favourite yummiest food?

Give a knock on your knee
I wanna check your reflex too
And I want a close look at your shoes
And the kind of socks you are wearing

Everything, I wanna know everything
Everything, I wanna hear everything
So do tell me little nonsense details
No-one else would ever care to know
But I do wanna know you
So do tell me everything

I'm a leaf

I’m a leaf on a tree
And it’s time for you, let go of me
I’m about to turn orange and brown after that
Will you promise not to be sad

I have done all I could
And I’ve done all I should
I loved being near you, that I want you to know
But it’s time for me to go

You have taught me to smile
Even if I should drift a while
I’ll get back to the ground and I’ll make you see
A new tree will come of me
