Lyrics

Out from the earth she ascends, her canopy unfolds and defends
All that's pure, and true of her descent
As storms clasp at our earnest eaves, whilst homes are destroyed and upheaved
Know we'll fight bitterly to protect your roots to your leaves

When we are gone, and our trunks have been felled
Many more will more will be drawn to the stories you'll tell
Upon your shoulder's you'll shield like a pillow
All our kin will reside in shade of the tender willow

Out from the earth she ascends, her canopy defends
All pure, and true of her descent
As storms clasp at our earnest eaves, and homes are upheaved
Know we'll fight bitterly to protect your roots to your leaves

When we are gone, and our trunks have been felled
Many more will more will be drawn to the stories you'll tell
Upon your shoulder's you'll shield like a pillow
All our kin will reside in shade of the tender willow
