lyrics

Had a little tree, I called her Love.
Home to lots of bees and a nest of birds.
Words I couldn’t speak on her thickened trunk
Told me everything that she felt like showing.
Her roots went on for days, or maybe months,
Of course I’d never really know unless I ran away.
And there is no way I would ever leave her, well,
There was no way I was ever going.

I don’t really have time for this
I don’t really have time for this

When I take naps I still dream of her;
The softest leaf fingers brushing my hair,
The song of those birds, I called them doves.
My little tree was mine all mine, my oh my, she was my little Love.

I don’t really have time for this,
I don’t really have time for this.
You’ve given me a lot of things I’m really gonna miss, but
I don’t have the time.

I don’t really have time for this,
I don’t really have time for this.
You’ve given me a lot, but I’d really rather reminisce, ‘cause
I don’t have the time.
