You were the green leafed
Given I am the purple tree in your front yard
Overlooking your balcony
I've never felt worse, then when the world cut you down
Are you just sawdust now?
I could have sworn I saw you burning into ember then blowing away

I didn't know you, as well as I should
To me you were a picture that lasted forever, but now I can see
Past what has passed me
I was the passerby
In your shade for years
And I paid no mind
I just smiled and walked by
And I never thanked you
You were happy to watch me
Am I just a shadow cast?
Is it too late to ask?
I want appreciation covering my body

Can I be forgiven?
For time didn't grant me
The wisdom to know and hold myself close
To flames I'm afraid of what I can't see
Are you a ghost inside of me?
I'm a pupil to you, and to time
I should listen when you say goodbye

And on the ride home I hid my tears safe in my hands
I carried them in
Through the door I held them before my guitar
I said one last song for the man
And the fact is I can't understand it
And the sadness just blasted like static
And like magic we were young again
