Under the Dreaming Tree

View On Black | Right2Roam Blog

 

These lyrics started running through my mind when I came across this shot I took a couple of years ago.

 

Standing here

The old man said to me,

"Long before these crowded streets

Here stood my dreaming tree."

Below it he would sit

For hours at a time

Now progress takes away

What forever took to find

And now he's falling hard

He feels the falling dark

How he longs to be

Beneath his dreaming tree

 

Conquered fear to climb

A moment froze in time

When the girl who first he kissed

Promised him she'd be his

Remembered mother's words

There beneath the tree

"No matter what the world

You'll always be my baby."

"Mommy come quick,

The dreaming tree has died."

The air is growing thick

A fear he cannot hide

The dreaming tree has died

 

Dreaming Tree - by Dave Matthews Band
