Not even the trees

This song is everything I’m feeling right now. I’d like this played at my Funeral please. Thanks.


Alone as I sit and watch the trees
Won’t you tell me if I scream
Will they bend down and listen to me?
And it makes me wonder
If I’ll know the words will you come
Will you laugh at me – or will I run?

Little boy says to me
“Where you goin’ now son?”
I said, I don’t know where I’m goin’ boy
I only know where I’m from

And it makes me wonder
If the stars shine when my eyes close
Or does my brothers heart cry (pfft. NOPE. He doesn’t give a shit)
I don’t know

I’m a stranger in my home
Now that everybody’s gone
Someone please talk to me
‘Cause I feel you cry
And you’re sitting with him
And I know I’ll never see you again

Lying down in Charleston under the Carolina sky
You see I’m tired of feeling this pain
I’m tired of living my own little lie

And it makes me wonder
When I see you in my dreams
Does it mean anything?
Are you trying to talk to me?

I’m a stranger in my home
Tell me are you feeling alone
Someone tell me what to do
‘Cause I’m feeling strong
And I wonder how you feel
Do you realize my pain is for real

I see you in my dreams
And I wonder if you’re looking down at me
And smiling right now

I wanna know if it’s true
When He looks at me
Won’t you tell me
Does He realize He came down here
He took you too soon?

And now my days are short and my nights are long
I lay down with memories of you
That keep me going on, going on
And it makes me wonder as I sit and stare
Will I see your face again, tell me, do you care?

I’m a stranger in my home
Living life on my own
Right now I just can’t see
‘Cause I’m feeling weak
And my soul begins to bleed
And no one is listening to me, not even the trees
