Crowded House Tall Trees Lyrics

Watch out big ships are waiting
Salt frozen on your cheek
Saw a girl and boy arriving
And a steamer put out to sea
Tall tree stand in the distance
Remember when you were green
Don't wipe the salt from your skin
You must keep running the distance
Sun sleeps on misty morning
Light years from channel three
I fell halfway to zero
Call me a hero I might just agree
Tall tree stand in the distance
Remember when you were green
Don't wipe the salt from your skin
You must keep running the distance
And the roses you grow
Have a powerful scent
They'll be breaking your heart
By the morning
Tall tree stand in the distance
Remember when you were green
Don't wipe the salt from your skin
You must keep running the distance
