Song Description

Each verse represents a stage of a relationship: in verse one friendship develops into love; verse two the foundation splinters with an infidelity; verse three is a tearful looking back.

Story Behind the Song

Completely autobiographical. G.E. Smith, of Saturday Night Live fame, picked this song out as his his favorite when I opened for him in 2004.


It was getting hard to live
We needed an alternative
A hiding place - to show its face
Then she said "Close your eyes"
There it was, to my surprise - a tree house
...our own tree house
Cheap wine, ice cream pops
We tower over the rooftops in our tree house
our tree house
Her blouse over my lampshade
Magic in the love we made in our tree house
...our own tree house

And I.....never want to leave
No I.....I never want to leave

We never heard the howling wind,
were not prepared when the roof caved in
Our tree house, our poor tree house
After the storm I sought repair
Returned to find you two there
I turned away, before I heard him say

"Baby I.....never want to leave
No I.....I never want to leave"

Stubborn wounds refuse to heal
New ones form, you don't feel the way I feel..
for our tree house
That was then, you've turned the page
from tenderness turned to rage
and bitter tears, but when the smoke clears
Don't forget how me and you
breathed brand new life into that rotting shed
Remember how I said

That I.....never want to leave
No I.....I never want to leave
our tree house
our tree house
our tree house
our old tree house.
