TREE
written by Ilene Weiss (c) 1997

It would appear
That my glory days are over
I was standing in the colored lights
Underneath a star
Look at me now
I'm lying in the gutter
With not one person uttering
"How beautiful you are"

There was a day
Whe I was still a baby
I was living in the nursery
My family was around
Somebody came
With promises of silver
And he severed my defenses
And he moved me from my ground

He knocked me down
Then he dressed me up
For the pictures
That he posed me in
And he looked at me
So adoringly
Til he knocked me down again

People walk by
And they wonder how I got here
Helpless and discarded
Stripped of all my wealth
Cut from my roots
And to all the world, a victim
If I had a voice to tell 'em
I'd say "Blame it on yourself"

'Cause
You knocked me down
Then you dressed me up
For the pictures
That you posed me in
And you looked at me
So adoringly
Til you knocked me down again

Yeah
You knocked me down
Then you dressed me up
For the pictures
That you posed me in
And you looked at me
So adoringly
Til you knocked me down again
Til you knocked me down again
