so long ago, i dreamt about a city built on rock and roll, when it fell
so long ago, i knew that it would happen but i couldn't get back to explain
so the future remained the same

now like the leaves you're gone
it's a fresh cut lawn that i left you on
in the pouring rain, i breathe your name and suddenly i feel happy again
so long ago, i saw you for a moment
but your figure got lost in the crowd
now i'm looking all over town

now like the leaves you're gone
it's a fresh cut lawn that i'm lying on
when i start to yawn, i breathe your name and suddenly i feel happy again

i see myself in all of you and all yourselves in me
shadows underneath my tree

there, hidden in the patterns that present themselves to me
shadows underneath my tree
i see myself in all of you and all yourselves in me
shadows underneath my tree

    General CommentI was listening to a collection of classical music, and when I listened to Ravel's Pavane Pour Une Infante Defunte I noticed it has the same melody as Underneath My Tree. Pretty cool that they may have intentionally used some classical elements in their music!
