​Hangin' Tree

This song is by Crash Test Dummies and appears on the album I Don't Care That You Don't Mind (2001).

A friend is a need
Like a gauze when you bleed
And you're layin' and cryin' away
And the dozen or so
Of the friends that I know
Aren't worth the time anyway

The tree can be a hangin' tree
The rose a thorny stem
The wind can blow across the field
But it's always us or them
Yeah it's always us or them

A song is a thing
That you you write and you sing
When you're layin' and cryin' away
And the dozen or so
That I wrote long ago
Don't sound good anymore anyway

The tree can be a hangin' tree
The rose a thorny stem
The wind can blow across the field
But it's always us or them
Yeah it's always us or them

A prayer is a thing
Like a kite on a string
That can snap and get lost in the sky
And a dare is a dare
So you better beware
'Cause soon you'll be saying goodbye

The tree can be a hangin' tree
The rose a thorny stem
The wind can blow across the field
But it's always us or them
Yeah it's always us or them
