"Trees" as written by Todd Eric Herfindal and Marty N...
I don't want to go through this life
Without you, by my side
And I-I-I, got it all worked out
In my head, is all it got to be

It'll be you and me
Up in the trees
And the forest will give us the answer
It'll be you and I
Up in the sky
It's a combination for disaster

We, we make believe
In a world we rule together
We-e-e-e, can build our dreams
With a knot tied tight
To last forever

And it'll be you and me
Up in the trees
And the forest will give us the answer
It'll be you and I
Up in the sky
It's a combination for disaster

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah yeah, yeah
We got one shot
So let's use our imaginations

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah yeah, yeah
You're all that I've got
So where do we go from he-e-e-re

And It'll be you and me
Up in the trees
And the forest will give us the answer
It'll be you and I
Up in the sky
It's a combination for disaster

And I know
There's more for us in this life
If we hold on
If we hold strong

And I know
There's more for us in this life
Can we hold on
Can we hold on

    General CommentThis is how I feel about my beautiful husband-to-be. As long as we are together the rest of it will fall into place! The forest will give us the answers as it were!

    General CommentI love this song. It was well written, and has an increadibly catchy tune along with it. Just about everyone can relate with these lyrics. There's always that one person that you don't want to go through life without.

    Looking forward to a Marty Casey album.

    General CommentDouble postage!

    I recently acquired a copy of the studio recording of Trees, and there have been a few things added to it. As good as the song was before, it sounds even better in the recording studio, in my opinion.

    This version starts out slow, but ends up like the first live version.

    Here's what I've got out of the studio version:

    I don't wanna go through this life
    Without you by my side
    And I've got it all worked out
    In my head
    Here's how it's got to be

    It'll be you and me up in the trees
    And the forest will give us the answer
    It'll be you and I up in the sky
    It's a combination for disaster

    We, we make believe
    In a world we rule together
    And we can build our dreams
    With a knot tied tight to last forever

    It'll be you and me up in the trees
    And the forest will give us the answer
    It'll be you and I up in the sky
    It's a combination for disaster

    Yeah,
    We got one shot
    So let's use our imaginations
    Yeah,
    You're all that I've got
    So where do we go from here?

    It'll be you and me up in the trees
    And the forest will give us the answer
    It'll be you and I up in the sky
    It's a combination for disaster

    And I know there's more for us in this life
    If we hold on
    If we hold strong
    I know there's more for us in this life
    Can we hold on?
    Can we hold on?

    General CommentHeard this song on the radio and they said it was by Marty Casey and the Lovehammers and can't believe more people haven't commented on it. Who is this Marty Casey anyways? Well I think this song is about a relationship and it's the lyricist's dreams about the future of the relationship.

    General CommentThis year's edition will feature an all-star line-up of rock musicians who will join forces to form the new rock super group, Supernova. The new super group will use this summer's Rock Star: Supernova as the competition to determine their new lead singer. Members of Supernova, featuring drummer Tommy Lee (Motley Crue), Jason Newsted (Metallica) and Gilby Clarke (Guns N' Roses) will take over couch duty with returning co-host Dave Navarro to judge the rock singers. Co-host Brooke Burke returns for stage introductions when the hopeful vocalists begin the quest to become Supernova's new lead singer.

    The winner will record an original CD with Supernova, to be co-written and produced by Butch
    Wagner (hit songwriter/producer for Avril Lavigne and Pink), that will be released in the fall before the band embarks on a world tour in early 2007.

    ROCK STAR: SUPERNOVA is produced by Mark Burnett Productions. Mark Burnett, David Goffin, Lisa Hennessy, Dave Navarro, Tommy Lee and Carl Stubner are executive producers. Conrad Riggs and Eden Gaha are co-executive producers.

    General CommentAfter the winning singer is selected on CBS's ROCK STAR, Supernova will record an original album, to be co-written and produced by Butch Walker (hit songwriter/producer for Avril Lavigne, Pink) that will be released in the fall before the band embarks on a world tour starting in early 2007.

    "I've toured with both Gilby and Jason. They're incredible musicians and I've always wanted to play with them," said Tommy Lee. "Starting a new band with old friends on worldwide television is going to be a blast, and we're going to pull out all the stops to find the most charismatic and musically talented lead singer to front Supernova. I love breaking the rules."

    Bassist Jason Newsted added, "This is a fantastic opportunity for me to play with guys I've respected for a long time. It gives us a chance to be innovators. This is a new thing. It's never been done before. We're going to break new ground musically and on television. The anticipation is building in me every day. This is a supergroup in the truest sense."

    Lead guitarist and co-writer Gilby Clarke proclaimed, "Rock n' Roll is so alive and I'm so excited to be a part of CBS's ROCK STAR. This is television history. Where else can you raid three historic bands to form one great band? I can't wait for the summer to begin."

    Butch Walker will join the project as co-writer and producer of the new album. "Working with top-notch musicians from legendary bands who want to create terrific music is always an enjoyable experience. I'm looking forward to whoever the new lead singer is going to be so the guys can start corrupting their mind…!"

    Dave Navarro and Brooke Burke will return as hosts, with Burke returning to the stage for introductions and Navarro returning to the judges' couch for input and evaluations. "Last year, doing ROCK STAR: INXS was the greatest summer job of my life," Navarro affirmed. "This year, I'm on the couch with my friends Tommy Lee, Gilby Clarke and Jason Newstead as they choose Supernova's lead singer."

    This summer's edition of CBS's ROCK STAR will also feature some format twists with a different music celebrity or rock legend each week. Said Navarro, "Friends of mine, like Slash, Macy Gray, Moby and Rob Zombie, will join us and throw in their two cents about who should stay and who should go."

    In the first season of CBS's ROCK STAR, rock sensation INXS found their new lead singer in Canadian heartthrob J.D. Fortune. Since the show, INXS has taken to the studio and the road, releasing their massive hit single "Pretty Vegas" and selling out every concert in their North American tour. Their new CD, "Switch," debuted in the Billboard Top 20, and is currently going gold and platinum in countries around the world.

    "Millions dream of becoming a rock star…our show actually makes that happen," said Mark Burnett, creator and executive producer of CBS's ROCK STAR. "The winner of CBS's ROCK STAR will not only play in huge stadiums before sold out crowds, they will do it alongside legendary musicians from three of America's biggest, all-time rock bands who have sold a combined total of a quarter of a billion albums: Motley Crüe, Guns N' Roses and Metallica. Fronting Supernova is the ultimate rock ‘n' roll dream and it's about to come true."

    Tommy Lee rose to stardom as a founding member of Motley Crüe. One of the most successful rock bands in history, Motley Crüe has sold over 40 million albums while also becoming the poster boys of rock star decadence. Most recently, Lee released his third solo album, Tommyland: The Ride, and announced a documentary project with award-winning filmmaker Bruce Sinofsky. His candid 2004 memoir, Tommyland, landed on The New York Times best-seller list.

    Jason Newsted is a six-time Grammy winner and was a longtime member of the legendary band Metallica, one of the most successful musical acts of all time (100 million albums sold worldwide). After his departure from Metallica, Newsted created the band Echobrain and, in 2003, he began touring with Ozzy Osbourne while also playing bass for the iconic techno-thrash band, Voivod.

    Gilby Clarke was the guitarist for the iconic rock band, Guns N' Roses (90 million albums sold), traveling on their legendary and infamous three-year "Use Your Illusion" world tour. He also worked with Michael Jackson, Lenny Kravitz, Jeff Beck, MC5 and on the Freddy Mercury Tribute Concert. He was a recipient of the MTV Video Vanguard Award.

    Butch Walker is best known as the songwriter, musician and producer behind hit songs for Avril Lavigne, Pink, Bowling for Soup and for Tommy Lee's recent solo album, Tommyland: The Ride. His song "My Happy Ending" went to Number One for Avril Lavigne and was the key track in her nine-time platinum album Under My Skin, leading to him being named by Rolling Stone magazine as "Hot Producer of the Year" in 2005. Pink's new album, I'm Not Dead, features two Butch Walker compositions.

    CBS' ROCK STAR is produced by Mark Burnett Productions. Mark Burnett, David Goffin, Lisa Hennessy, Dave Navarro, Tommy Lee and Carl Stubner are executive producers. Conrad Riggs and Eden Gaha are co-executive producers.

    General CommentI find it rather 'cute' and saccharine sweet. Love his voice quality.

    I find it weird from someone as old as him, writing such simple lyrics though. Or is the younger generation of lyricists getting too complicated?
