Plain White T's The Giving Tree Lyrics

Last updated: 09/29/2013 08:46:51 AM

All the leaves on the giving tree have fallen
No shade to crawl in, underneath
I've got scars from a pocket knife where you carved
Your heart, into me

If all you wanted was love
Why would you use me up,
Cut me down, build a boat and sail away?
When all I wanted to be
Was your giving tree
Settle down, build a home and make you happy?

I lie in the dead of night and I wonder,
who's covers, you're between
And it's sad layin in his bed you feel hallow
So you crawl home, back to me

If all you wanted was love
Why would you use me up,
Cut me down, build a boat and sail away?
When all I wanted to be
Was your giving tree
Settle down, build a home and make you happy?

Well I see a trail that starts
A line of broken hearts behind you
That lead you back to me
The once sad and lonely fool
With nothing left but roots to show?
(ooooo)

If all you wanted was love
Why would you use me up,
Cut me down, build a boat and sail away?
When all I wanted to be
Was your giving tree
Settle down, build a home and make you happy
Settle down, build a home and make you happy.
