lyrics

Like A Tree [4/4]

A/Bm/D/F#mE/
(same chords for intro, verse, bridge)

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

G D A A7 (X 2) E E7 E
Its hard to rest my head at night
When every day I’m called out to fight

A Bm D E (X4)
Like a tree I stand (I stand)
Under the stars
Reach for heaven (reach for heaven)
So far

Unkept 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

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

Key change (B Major)

B C# E F# (X4)
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 (End on B)
