about

I wrote this song a few years back in Big Sur. It came to me in a flash, the way the best ones always do. Not sure why I was chosen to sing it, but here I am. The oak trees seemed to have needed a voice for this soft message of co-dependence and the need for harmony between humans and nature.

lyrics

I'm a Live Oak tree
Birds build their home in me
Kids climb my branches to see
How I see

And I'm alive for the day
But I don't have much to say
A fire burns in me
I'm a Live Oak tree

(Chorus)
And she's my evergreen
I can feel her suffering
And I know that it's true
She takes away my pain
Over you

And I'm a fallin' oak tree
I feel by the axe of greed
They came and conquered me
I'm a fallin' tree

(Repeat Chorus)

And I'm a dying oak tree
I died so suddenly
My death brings falling leaves
I'm a dying tree
That's how I leave
I'm a dying tree
That's how I leave
