lifeblood: songs: lyrics: climbin' tree


when i was a little boy
i spent my days climbing in trees
i thought i would climb to you
looking for things i could hold on to

oh lord won't you come by here
i can't bring myself to you
you know my greatest fear
is that i do what i would not do

when i became a man
i let go and i fell down
now if i hold my hands up please
will you be my climbin' tree

oh lord won't you lay me a visit
i can't bring myself to you
oh i don't know what is it
makes me do what i would not do

you i spent the day
watching the rain with a little boy
it made me think of you
oh lord what must i do

oh lord won't you come around
i can't bring myself to you
make me found oh make me found
cause i do what i would not do

as a child i sang out loud
(sang out loud)
and loved you in my childish ways
won't you help me sing out now
(sing out now)
and all of my remaining days

oh lord won't you come by here
i can't bring myself to you
you know my greatest fear
is that i do what i would not do
