Orchard

In an orchard of apple trees

That is where you could find me

How I loved them

I still love them

 

Hours, days, months, and years

Those branches took away my fears

How they held me

They still hold me

 

Nothing you could say or do

Could ever change how I feel about you

I’ll always hold you dear

My innocence is what you keep near

 

The world only heard my hum

Nothing more than “hmmm mmmmm mmmmm”

 

But amongst those trees I could sing

I had to let my little soul ring

And they would listen

Softly listen

 

Nothing you could say or do

Could ever change how I feel about you

I’ll always hold you dear

My innocence is what you keep near

 

Well I was too young to know

Just how much you helped me to grow

I’ll always hold you dear

You gave me my voice

And you taught me to hear

 

I was too young to know

Just how much you helped me to grow

I’ll always hold you dear

You gave me my voice

And you taught me to hear

 

How long it has been

Since I was a child within those limbs

Feeling safer than the safest I could be

Well in my heart I’m still with those trees

And even today that is where you’ll find me

When I’m singin’, really singin’

 

Nothing you could say or do

Could ever change how I feel about you

I’ll always hold you dear

My innocence is what you keep near
