lyrics

Nestled in the cool dampness
Of the forest surrounding you
The swaying, golden lattice
Of branches curving all around me

A few shafts of sunlight
Filtering down through the leaves
Pinwheels, pinwheels
That gently change shape

The ancient trees
Are beckoning to you
They won't tell a soul
If you just melt into the dirt

Such peculiar instrumentation
This ongoing symphony
You could curl up inside
This revolving canopy

The ancient trees
Are beckoning to you
They won't tell a soul
If you just melt into the dirt

Listen, listen
They’re whispering to you
They won't tell a soul
If you just melt into the dirt
