Melancholy tree

In this forsaken town 
there is a place
just follow the path
beyond the wretched tracks
at the end of the storm
a place you can be 

under the shade, the shade of the melancholy tree

Branches of sorrow
and leaves of despair
to be shed and regrown
on the melancholy tree

on the melancholy tree

When you are aching to be free
go sit, go sit by the melancholy tree
And you'll feel your sorrows rising up 

to the branches, the branches of the melancholy tree

leaving you be
leaving you be
you need nothing to see
nothing but

the shade, the shade of the melancholy tree.
