Lyrics
Tree Waltz by Kevin Roach [V] Use to sleep so soundly, enjoyed my forty winks. Mastered the art of catnaps with my love down by the creek. One day she pulled up a sapling, shoved it into my hands. Wiped the dirt onto my favorite shirt; that was when my waltz began [C] Tell me how high, how high will that tree grow, in my yard? Tell me how long, how long will this heartache feel so hard? It's growing outside my window lurking like a thief, rose like a Times Square Billboard advertising my grief. Break: [V] Planted a rose bush beside it my ex's loomin' tree. It wilted in her deadly shade, as sad as it could be. A neighbor once remarked to me, "I should let that tree die." But then it was too early, and that thought made me cry. [C] Tell me how high, how high will that tree grow, in my yard? Tell me how long, how long will this heartache feel so hard? It's growing outside my window lurking like a thief, rose like a Times Square Billboard advertising my grief. Break: [V] Received another bitter letter, they always arrive on time. They helped me tear my rusting fetters 'cause I can't recall my crime. Once I planted a garden, hoping it would bear some fruit. But her tree took all the water with its lousy roots. [B] If I chopped it down, I'd work the wood into a wooden tomb. Burn the branches with the leaves, leaving room for the letters too. I'll re-plant that little garden and enjoy those spoils. Forget her, too; that's what I'll do each time I turn the soil. [C] Tell me how high, how high will that tree grow, in my yard? Tell me how long, how long will this heartache feel so hard? It's growing outside my window lurking like a thief, rose like a Times Square Billboard advertising my grief.
