Lyrics
The madness of your family seed; The funny way that folks can be; The fear of Change is weighting me; It was a solitary shade tree. The tragedy of childish things; Moving on, so life can bring The richness of a medicine; Hard to swallow down. I tried to watch you down the drive; Watch your tailights fading; Can't say that I was angry; Can't say that I was anything; I couldn't feel a lot of things... It was a solitary shade tree. This bitter boy is ripe for you; No bitter heart is right for you; Butterflies are fleeting things; You know I got the message; Step into the world, start out at the roots. A minutes worth of steady ache; A little breath, and I can stand; One little step, and I'm a man; If steady on the path. I turned the timepiece over; This way I could remember; When my will, so sober; Washes over everything. This bitter boy is ripe for you; No bitter heart is right for you; Butterflies are fleeting things; You know I got the message; Step into the world, start out at the roots. I knew they wouldn't understand; They think he's more of man than I am; For all this time I've ambled on; The silence never broken. But I've learned prudence in the innings since; Cautious love, not bitterness; No static easy to forget The rest of us, unspoken. This little boy is ripe for you; No bitter heart is right for you; Butterflies are fleeting things; You know I got the message; Step into the world, start out at the roots.
