​In My Tree

This song is by Matthew Sweet and appears on the album Living Things (2004).

I still hide behind my fears, show my years, I'm so tired
But it only takes a little bit 'til you feel wild
So you need to fly away and then you'll begin again
Like I will, you will too

You are high above the canopy, living free bird
When I see you makes me want to say there is no word
'Cause I can't find one as meaningful as your ghostly touch
I will, you will too

'Cause there's nothing I can do
To bring you down in my tree, who can tell you
When you want to break free
Nobody else is living you see
And you are only here for now and not for long

You should know what you're expecting is not what you'll find
'Cause you know you do confuse the two things in your mind
And it won't stay in your heart for long
And I know I've been so wrong, you have too

And there's nothing I can do
To bring you down in my tree, who can tell you
When you want to break free
Nobody else is living you see
And you are only here for now and not for long

I will, you will too

There's nothing I can do
To bring you down in my tree, who can tell you
When you want to break free
Nobody else is living you see
And you are only here for now and not for long
