​There Is A Tree

This song is by Carrie Newcomer and appears on the album The Geography Of Light (2008).

Last night I dreamt you very near
Though the night was dark beyond the glass
I knew you'd left before I woke
But you fogged the window when you passed

The air was still and smelled like rain
Though I'd never known so dry a spell
And what I heard there in the dark
Are the secrets I will never tell

There is a tree beyond this world
In it's ancient roots this song is curled
I am the fool whose life's been spent
Between what's said and what is meant

I didn't mean what went so wrong
Some things I wish I didn't know
I've always lived inside my head
And often utterly alone

I'll be a pillow for your head
You can make me promises you can't keep
And I'll believe each word you've said
And I'll hum to you while you sleep

There is a tree beyond this world
In it's ancient roots this song is curled
I am the fool whose life's been spent
Between what's said and what is meant

You took me by my shaking hand
Laughed at me and closed the door
And you put your hands to my waist
And you waltzed me 'round the kitchen floor

There is a tree beyond this world
In it's ancient roots this song is curled
I am the fool whose life's been spent
Between what's said and what is meant

So I will wander without fail
In circles that grow ever wide
The sky expands and then exhales
With an ache that never will subside

There is a tree beyond this world
In it's ancient roots this song is curled
I am the fool whose life's been spent
Between what's said and what is meant
