The greenest trees you'll ever see
are the ones in your mind
And all the answers and the dreams
will come to you in time.

Yeah, you are living life
the way you feel

I know the world around you
everyone shares the sky
You never see darkness
you are the daylight.

Yeah, you are living life
the way you feel

Go away with a smile
Don't forget about your past
Don't keep yourself from giving.
I am always watching you
be yourself and staying true
'cause it makes me feel like life's worth living.

The way you feel

I've never minded where you're going
I know that change is a part of you
I'm not gonna hide anymore, I'm gonna listen to myself
and maybe one day I can be real too.

Yeah, you are living life
Yeah you are, you are living life
Don't you know that you are living life
the way you feel
and that is real

    General CommentThe first verse of this song is my senior quote. I think this song and Different but the Same would make great senior songs if Ben Kweller became largely popular. I think it’s about a relationship of any sort that has recently ended or being put on hold and having the wisdom of knowing that change happens everywhere to everyone and it has to be accepted.

    General Commentthis song for me is just about "living life the way you feel" not putting up fronts for anyone else, going after what YOU want (the green trees in your mind) and being happy with the way you're leading your life. love this song.

    General CommentI almost feel like this is from a parent to a child who is growing up. Basically though what Manda3eb said though.
