lyrics

Under a willow tree
My old mistake and me
Take turns walking out on the water
Up on the tallest branch
I see him take my hand
Swing me out into space
And close his eyes before I land

Under a yellow sky
My youngest child and I
Go gather jewels in the garden
We plant them in the ground
A fatal six feet down
But before we turn around
They've grown in stone and we're surrounded

Under a willow tree
My old mister and me
Take turns walking out on the water
Up on the tallest branch
I see him take my hand
Swing him out into space
And close my eyes before he lands
