This song is by Cream and appears on the album Disraeli Gears (1967) and on the box set Those Were the Days (1997).

Original video
Outside my window is a tree
Outside my window is a tree
There only for me

And it stands in the grey of the city
No time for pity for the tree or me

There is a world of pain
In the falling rain around me

Is there a reason for today?
Is there a reason for today?
Do you remember?

I can hear all the cries of the city
No time for pity for a growing tree

There is a world of pain
In the falling rain around me

Outside my window is a tree
Outside my window is a tree
There only for me

And it stands in the grey of the city
No time for pity for the tree or me

There is a world of pain
In the falling rain around me
