You said I was a tree
Putting down roots by a stream
You told me I would be strong
No matter what went wrong

But I’m creaking and bending in the storm
Through wind and hard rain, I am worn

You said I was a bird
Everyday you’d provide, that’s what I heard
You told me I could fly
Without a care, without a sigh

But these wings are so tired and sore
Afraid of what tomorrow has in store

You said I was a child
Hanging on to you in every trial
You told me a kingdom was mine
That you would hold me for all time

But lately I’m feeling alone
Would come back and take me home?
