lyrics

I haven’t said a word for a year
I closed my eyes and shut my mouth. I tried not to hear
What was coming
What was coming

Sometimes I wish that I were the wind instead of the tree
I would float about the earth and the sea
Sometimes it seems I’m so rooted and rotten and barren of leaves
I’ll quiver at the touch of a slight breeze

I haven’t left my home for a year
I locked my door and sat right down. I tried not to fear
What was creeping
What was creeping

Sometimes I wish that I were the wind instead of the tree
I would float about the earth and the sea
Sometimes it seems I’m so rooted and rotten and barren of leaves
I’ll quiver at the touch of a slight breeze

I’ve been waiting for the clouds to part
I’ve been waiting for this broken heart to mend
I’ve been waiting for an apology
I’ve been waiting for this great symphony to end

Sometimes I wish that I were the wind instead of the tree
I would float about the earth and the sea
Sometimes it seems I’m so rooted and rotten and barren of leaves
I’ll quiver at the touch of a slight breeze
