"Lemon Tree" as written by and Volker/freudenthaler Hinkel....
I'm sittin' here in the boring room
It's just another rainy Sunday afternoon
I'm wasting my time
I got nothin' to do
I'm hangin' around
I'm waitin' for you
But nothing ever happens and I wonder

I'm drivin' around in my car
I'm drivin' too fast
I'm drivin' too far
I'd like to change my point of view
I feel so lonely
I'm waitin' for you
But nothing ever happens and I wonder

I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon tree
I'm turnin' my head up and down
I'm turnin', turnin', turnin', turnin', turnin' around
And all that I can see is just another lemon tree

Sing!
Dap-dadada-dadpm-didap-da
Dadada-dadpm-didap-da
Dap-didili-da

I'm sittin' here
I miss the power
I'd like to go out takin' a shower
But there's a heavy cloud inside my head
I feel so tired
Put myself into bed
Well, nothing ever happens and I wonder

Isolation is not good for me
Isolation, I don't want to sit on the lemon tree

I'm steppin' around in the desert of joy
Baby, anyhow I'll get another toy
And everything will happen and you wonder

I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see is just another lemon tree
I'm turnin' my head up and down
I'm turnin', turnin', turnin', turnin', turnin' around
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon tree
And I wonder, wonder

I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see
And all that I can see
And all that I can see
Is just a yellow lemon tree

    My InterpretationEveryone says life is so great, "look at the blue blue sky", but life seems to just constantly give you Lemons (you know, "When life gives you Lemons", ETC). He tries to "change his point of view", "turns his head up and down" and "turns around" but, especially when you're depressed, it can be extremely difficult to see past all the "Lemon Trees".

    I think the "waiting for you" bit, is about him waiting for someone to help him out of this rut. Help him get away from this "lonely", "isolated" boredom that never seems to end. Because again, when you're depressed, nothing interests you, there's no reason to do anything. Just sit "down here in the boring room", "wasting time" and waiting for something to change, "But nothing ever happens".

    I love this song...
