lyrics

Like A Tree

Oh to be rooted, lalala lalala on mother earth
Oh to be rooted, lalala lalala on mother earth

I still have hope
For peace of mind
For love that’s true
That’s hard to find

Still I dream
A far off place
A beautiful space
That’s hard to find

It's hard to rest my head at night
When every day I’m called out to fight

Like a tree I stand (I stand)
Under the stars
Reach for heaven (reach for heaven)
So far

Un-kept and clean
The way love should be
Unlocked and hoping
The way your hearts free

I still have time
Maturing not aging
Bring a joyful song
Straight to your ear

It's hard to rest my head at night
When every day I’m called out to fight

Like a tree I stand (I stand)
Under the stars
Reach for heaven (reach for heaven)
So far

Oh to be rooted, lalala lalala on mother earth
Oh to be rooted, lalala lalala on mother earth
Oh to be at peace, lalala lalala on mother earth
Oh to be at peace, lalala lalala on mother earth

Like a tree I stand
Under the stars
Reach for heaven
So far

Like a tree I stand
Under the stars
Reach for heaven
So far
