In The Shadow Of The Tree

i hope you don’t mind if i say
_though i cherish the time
_and i would never regret
no, no, i really can’t stay
_i just failed to find
_that thing i came here to get

i looked for my answer in love
i looked in devotion and trust
i sought it in the money i made
in power and the promise of fame

then the angels closed in around me
to whisper in my ear the answer that i need:
i have no need to fear in the shadow of the Tree

one branch of thought has born this:
_he who seeks what is right will surely confuse it
the other branch has sworn this:
_he who would save his life, he surely will lose it

i looked in devotion and trust
_(but i never found it)
i looked for my answer in love
_(but it ain’t nowhere around it)
i sought it in the money i made
_(i got more lost the more i counted)
in power and the promise of fame

then the angels closed in around me
and whispered in my ear the answer that i need:
i have no need to fear in the shadow of the Tree
I’m free, free, free
