As a Tree

(Maya Barnes)

These lyrics are as much a poem as a song, from first just referencing trees and the atmosphere they provide to giving multiple metaphors actually connecting oneself to a tree. It speaks basically about change and how, just like trees, there's different seasons of change that we go through that can strip us of our leaves and make us bear. But when it goes from a general first-person perspective to the speaker talking about someone else, love is introduced. It goes on then to speak about how when we are blessed to have the right type of love by our side, it reminds us of our strength and aids us in conquering those really hard seasons that we all must endure.

When the trees along my path are up so high where I would see what had not been seen, and filled to a whole with hue after hue of all the brightest greens, I remember Being there with them I feel as full as those red-brown limbs, when alongside their greens. Full of happiness and full of how it is possible to see what had not been seen When then the unseen winds blow harder, and the leaves on those red-brown limbs of the trees on my worn down path change color, To vibrant yellows, oranges, and reds all around, I see them fall. As they fall I begin to fall, begin to break down all my walls and hints at what is near A change I know not to fear But that I can hardly bear XXX XXX XXX XXXXXX XX XX XXXX XX XXX XXXXXX XXXX XXXX XXX XXXXX XX XXXX XX XXXX XX XXXXXXXX XX XXXX X XXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXX XXXX XX XXXX XXX XXXXX XX XXXX XXXX XXX XXXX XXX XXXXXX XX XX XX XXXXX XX XXX XXXXXX X XXXX XX XXXX X XXXX XXX XXXXXXXXXX XX X XXXX XXX XXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXXX XXX XXX XXX XXX XXXX XXXX XXXXX XX XXXXXXX XXX XXXXXXXX XX XX XXX XXX XXX XXX XXX XXXXXX XXX XXXX XXXXX XXX XX XXXX
