Redwood Tree

Album: The Otherside (2020)
  • Oh, redwood tree
    Don't you recognize me?
    No, it's not much time for you
    Its been decades for me
    Oh, Redwood tree
    Sorry, I had to leave
    Eager mind and a teenage heart
    Can get hooked on a dream

    I saw the world, you saw my parents grow old
    You've got your roots, and I've got the wind, the wind in my soul

    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    Don't know what you have when you're young
    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    But you'll know what you had when it's gone
    You'll know what you had

    Old redwood tree
    Now it's just you and me
    Back then it was hard to stay and easy to leave
    In the soft summer breeze
    It's so simple to see
    The time kept ticking back home
    While I was living for me

    I saw the world, you saw my parents grow old
    You've got your roots, and I've got the wind
    The wind in my soul

    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    Don't know what you have when you're young
    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    But you'll know what you had when it's gone
    The only thing left of what used to be is you
    The only thing left of what used to be is you

    Old redwood tree
    Don't you recognize me?

    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    Don't know what you have when you're young
    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    But you'll know what you had when it's gone
    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    Don't know what you have when you're young
    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    But you'll know what you had when it's gone

    You'll know what you had
