​There Beneath

This song is by The Oh Hellos and appears on the album Dear Wormwood (2015).

There beneath the willow tree
I learned a lot about the way of things
I learned that everything (The wind, the leaves)
Has breath inside
They were pointing ever east
To see the ever-turning aeon cease
Their wills were ever bent on waiting with all their might

I know (I know)
I know this
There is beauty in the way of things

There beyond the palisade
I saw the morning lead a cavalcade
They made a marvel of a display
And it made me cry, "O lai"

O lai (O lai)
O lai lord
There is beauty in the way of things
