Lyrics

 

Tree of Knowledge

 

Verse 1   Her skin smelled like oranges ripe from the tree

Tasting so tart yet so gentle and sweet

Sap flows so sweet she?s got long maple hair

Sweet breeze soft caresses think I?ll linger there

 

 

Chorus1Tree of KnowledgeTree of Dreams

Tree of LifeTree of Pain

Roots Run DeepMy path is clear

Seeking ShelterFrom my deepest fear

 

Verse2In her flesh colored branches I was tangled and trapped

She squeezed me so tight thought she would snap my back

She whispered her longing in the rustling leaves

In the bright morning light we planted a seed

 

Chorus 2Tree of KnowledgeTree of Dreams

Tree of LiveTree of Pain

Roots Run DeepEverlasting Love

She gives me shelter from the storms above

 

Instrumental Verse

Instrumental Chorus

 

Verse 3Her eyes shown like diamonds bright stars in the sky

She told me she loved me and then said goodbye

Adorned with leaves to hide my shame

She wouldn?t even tell me her name

 

 

Chorus 1

 

 

EndingHer skin smelled like oranges ripe from the tree
