"Lost Tree" as written by Sierra Kusterbeck, Blake Harnage and Dave Bassett....
Their arms, they reach,
They branch like they're trying to catch me,
They stand so tirelessy,
Outgrown, the sides of roads,
Are mixed in gold,
The summer has me,
The summer has me sold.

I see the hint,
Just picture it,
Craving to witness,
But we blinked and missed it,
Beg to the sky,
Long days and all night,
Beg to the sky,
Long days and all night.

Here we are,
Rooted deep.
Looking up,
So sun sweet,
Until the fall,
We lose it all
Here we are.

Thin and bare,
Stuck in the stiff stare,
I wait up in the air,
That makes it all fair,
We stop and grow and stop and grow,
We co-exist, flourished and sun kissed.

Anything you'd like,
Your back road eyes,
They're getting dry and unnatural smile,
You're lost in this place,
I see it in your face,
Lost in this place,
I see it in your face.


Here we are,
Rooted deep.
Looking up,
So sun sweet,
Until the fall,
We lose it all
Here we are.


YEAH!

Whoa, whoa.

There's a vulture on my shoulder.
The time I'm wasting,
Can't say where I've been.
Hey, mind reader,
Don't let me get away,
Don't let me get away.
(So easy)
Stranger I know so well.
Don't let me get away,
Don't let me get away.

Blame it on the television.
You make your own love.
I'm pulling,
I'm pushing,
I'm putting it, out of my mind.
We aim our arrows high,
What a deal, I've worked with father sky,
So why don't you just quit?

Don't let me get away,
Don't let me get away,
(So why don't you just quit?)
Don't let me get away,
Don't let me get away,
I'm lost in it,

There's a vulture on my shoulder,
Don't let me get away,
Don't let me get away,
I'm lost in it,
So lost in it.

    General Commentok, picture a tree. idk about any of you, but i pictured the tree on their very first t-shirt they sold way back before they were this big. but the tree had so many things in the leaves and branches it was so interesting. so i was picturing that tree and at the end of the song, those were all the sounds coming from the tree. the tree symbolizing life and how every person has an individual perspective on things, but some people see and feel it all. we're dealing with genius here people. versaemerge just has it locked. the world is in the palm of their hands to change and mold it into whatever they want.

    General CommentThe song is simply gorgeous. We're all trees, growing in the summer until the fall when we change our colors and it leaves us bare. In the summer we grow again. "We stop and grow and stop and grow."

    Then top it off with a beautiful montage to bring a close to an amazing album.

    VersaEmerge is a beyond awesome band that doesn't get enough credit. Love them. <3

    General CommentUH CORRECTION?
    "All mixed in gold" not are mixed in gold, "This summer, This summer has me sold" not the summer has me sold and lastly, "Beg to the sky, long days and old nights..." Overall nice job...I know I couldnt do it without looking at the lyrics on the inside of the album...god sierra....could you have a prettier voice? I wish my voice was like yours,but it is SO not...which explains so much about me lol. :(
