Lyrics

Whirlwinds out throwing seeds
Blooms grow from the debris
Randomly land side by side
Seasons fall and then they rise

We ask for no more than this
A soil so rich to grow
With roots growing shoots
And limbs bearing leaves with fruit

It’s just you and me - The tallest of trees

And time it will strip our leaves
No rhyme or reason here to grieve
And baby it’s a simple fact
That all we lose can grow back soon - If we want it too

Yes we’re stuck here I guess
What looks like a mess are roots
But if they dig there they’ll find
That we’ve been intwined since youth

It’s just you and me - The tallest of trees

An empty nest that used to sing
The eggs have hatched they miss the spring
And underneath the overcast
The dawn is slow the dusk is fast

And so the lightning will flash
And then comes the crash - boom
But if they dig there they’ll find
That I’m still intwined with you

It’s just you and me - The tallest of trees
It’s just you and me - The tallest of trees
