Wind and Oak (LIVE​!​)

from by Wild Orphan



Recorded LIVE at Tin Angel


You said that I'm like the wind that flew
and you're the Oak tree whose leaves
I blew
I'd slow down if I knew how to,
but I've never been as grounded
as you

My Oak tree, with time you grew
friends with the ground your roots
stretch through
I could learn from your point of view,
but I'm the wind, so I'll bid you

You will never leave,
and I will always go

You say I'm strong, and that's not untrue
but I've got no guidance to
turn to
No ground to dig my roots into
If I'm the wind, did I blow it
with you?

'Cause if I've got nothing to lose,
I will go to Kashmir and Jammu
Voy a viajar a Peru
You say I'm strong, but I feel like
I withdrew

You will never leave,
and I will always go

I'll apologize to you
We should live how we each
aim to
That's the way that is tried and true,
and I will learn how to make do
without you

You will never leave,
and I will always go
