lyrics

Lately I've been patiently waiting
For you to rise up from the forest floor
Where your limbs are tangled up in the thorn bush
And every movement hurts that little bit more

Lately I've been anticipating
That someday you would rise from the gloom
That these thorns would turn to sticky willow
And I could peel them off like scabs from a wound

But I've done all I can to save you
So until that day I will be waiting for you to

Meet me under the sycamore tree
Its pale white branches
And light a fire at the water's edge
And sing me to sleep tonight

Lately all this poison ivy
Only seems to drag you further behind
Robs you of the courage to find me
Makes you sleepy and lose track of time

Now the days and weeks have turned into decades
And how long will I be waiting for you to

Meet me under the sycamore tree
Its pale white branches
And light a fire at the water's edge
And sing me to sleep tonight

With the melodies that roll across the water
Bringing memories returning with the tide
Of the man you used to
When I became your bride

So meet me under the sycamore tree

Meet me under the sycamore tree
Its pale white branches
And light a fire at the water's edge
And sing me to sleep tonight
