"I Will Never Die" as written by Ian Christian Holljes and Brittany Holljes....
Hickory, oak, pine, and weed
Bury my heart underneath these trees
And when a southern wind comes to raise my soul
Spread my spirit like a flock of crows

'Cause I've loved you for too long
I've loved you for too long
I've loved you for too long

Old heat of raging fire
Come and light my eyes
Summer's kiss to electric wire
But I'll never die

Sycamore, ash, moss, and loam
Wrap your roots all around my bones
And when they come for me
When they call my name
Cast my shadow from a bellow's flame

'Cause I've loved you for too long
I've loved you for too long
I've loved you for too long

(So let the storm come)

Old heat of raging fire
Come and light my eyes
Summer's kiss to electric wire
But I'll never die

I will never die

You can bury my body, but I'll never die

In the dead of night
(In the dead of night)
I'm gonna loose these chains
(I'm gonna loose these chains)
I'm gonna run and run and run and run and run
(Sing on, sister)
I'm gonna run and run and run and run
Coming for you again
(Oh, coming for you again)

So let the storm come

Old heat of raging fire
Come and light my eyes
Summer's kiss to electric wire
But I'll never die

I will never die

You can bury my body, but I'll never die

Hickory, oak, pine, and weed
Bury my heart underneath these trees

    My Interpretationthis is just my theory but i think this song is about a witch being burned at the stake. it sounds like a prayer/spell to bind herself to the tree(s) so that she will never die. the 'i've love you for too long' part could possibly tie into this theory if her lover turned her in. i heard there were cases of witches during the salem witch trials who were burned at the stake for supposedly casting love spells on married men. this could possibly be about one of those cases.
