Lyrics by: Rose DeShaw
Gaggle: Kingston
Tune: Take Me Home, Country Roads

In our childhoodWe remember
Trees around us
They were our protectors
Apple, maple
We would climb them
Gather leaves and
Shelter ‘neath their branches
CHORUS For the trees
I will stand
In this place
They belong
Leafy giants
Still protecting
And the trees
Must go on
v2) Now I’m all grown
Still I need them
Trees to shade me
Rustle when the wind blows
Birds find shelter
Home for creatures
Lullabies play
In their stirring branches
v3) Then our landscapes
Finally barren
Water dried up
Grasses brown and gone
Too late knowing
What the trees held
Secrets of our future
In the trees alone
