Paul Colman Trio (PC3) The Killing Tree Lyrics

Last updated: 01/31/2007 11:00:00 AM

All alone in an evil dream I see myself up high
And it's me over you with my arms spread open wide
I try to run from the place I know that I can be set free
Come away come away there's a sweet voice calling me
To the killing tree

I look around at all the faces who are passing me
And I run try to run with nails in my feet
All the time I was building castles on a sandy beach
Leading you leading you to a place I'd never been
To the killing tree
Come on

I know what you're asking me and I don't wanna give
'Cause it's safe and I know 'cause I've been here all these years
All the precious pain I hold without it there is fear
And I'm afraid when you say that you'll get me outta here
To the killing tree
Come on

Come away to a place of healing

So now I run to you and I move from night to day
For to live I must die and there's still no other way
I was alone in an evil dream but you took my place up high
Now it's you over me with your arms spread open wide
On the killing tree
Come on
