"Chinaberry Tree" as written by and Jonas Bjerre Terkelsboel Silas Utke Graae Joergensen....
In parallel sea what would I be?
My first love said to me:
"Tears out for the world to see"
I would not be
I did not see the China berry tree
Tears out, it would feel so
Heavenly, heavenly, heavenly
Hard now to picture a me
Without a you

"Don't interfere"
Part of her back was frozen
For the remainder of the war
"Don't be concerned"
But I never learned how not to be
As my first love said to me:
"I don't care. I'm not there"
So that I could not sleep
My whole being was falling apart
So that I soon cried out:
"Dear friends, hold me!"

    General CommentChinaberry tree refers to a break up. The girl is the beautiful, yet poisionus chinaberry tree. My first love said to me:
    “Tears out for the world to see”
    That part is where the woman instigates the break up causing the persons "tears out for the world to see". The “Don’t interfere” is her saying leave me alone. Part of her back was frozen is her giving him the cold shoulder, and the remainder of the war is the remainder of the break up. “Don’t be concerned” is the don't worry about me line that the male would say to the chinaberry tree.

    But I never learned how not to be
    As my first love said to me:
    “I don’t care. I’m not there”

    This part is how he never learned how to stop caring about her, even though she did stop caring.

    My whole being was falling apart
    So that I soon cried out:
    “Dear friends, hold me!”

    Only his friends could help him now.
