Song Description

A sad story song about the danger of standing still.

Lyrics

She Pulls Trees From The Ground
Words & Music by Ben Wood (Copyright 2005)

She lost him there
A long time ago
Now the long beanstalk weeds have grown
Everywhere
And over the curb
Spilling onto the face of the road

They walked there once
Til it got so dark
That the trees turned to black silhouettes
They held hands
Til the sweat ran down
Their thumbs twirled like drum majorettes

If I stayed the night
For the rest of my life here with you
The grass would grow taller
And cover us over for good.

She drags her heels
Along the path
But the moss underfoot makes no sound
She looks for him
But he can?t be found
Though she pulls all the trees from the ground
Though she pulls all the trees from the ground

He?s never been
To that place again
Since they put up the barb wire last spring
He remembered her
When he smelt the grass
But the memory didn?t mean anything
But the memory didn?t mean anything

If I stayed the night
For the rest of my life here with you
The grass would grow taller
And cover us over for good.
