I'm on the train
I see the stations going by in the rain
And I hear the sigh "these days"
'Cuz I miss the trees

I see you on the street
You don't look back you're zooming by off to a party
With all those faces to see
You don't miss the trees

Downtown
Something's not quite right
I can't see why I should cry

You like it here
Oh yeah I understand
But I can't see the sky
And I can't feel the breeze
And I miss the trees

    General CommentThis song is so melancholy. It's about living in the city, and missing the simplicity of the countryside. Or if you dig deeper, it could be about missing a simpler time in your life, like before a bad relationship.
