In My Tree

Up here in my tree
Newspapers matter not to me
No more crowbars to my head
I’m trading stories with the leaves instead

Wave to all my friends
They don’t seem to notice me
All their eyes trained on the street
Sidewalks, cigarettes and scenes

Up here so high I start to shake
Up here so high the sky I scrape
I’m so high I hold just one breath here within my chest
Just like innocence

I remember when
I swore I knew everything, oh yeah
They say knowledge is a tree, yeah
He’s growing up just like me, yeah

I’m so light the wind me shakes
I’m so high the sky I scrape
I’m so light I hold just one breath and go back to my nest
Sleep with innocence…
Up here so high the vines they break
Up here so high the sky I scrape
And my eyes peeled both wide open, and I got a glimpse
Of my innocence… got back my innocence…
Still got it, you got it.
