about

this is a completely new version - rebuilt and rearranged from scratch - of an old song previously featured in my 2010's album "palimpsest".

----------------------

lyrics

remember when we thought we were the only special beings?
but still we had the same old dreams that everybody did
"I will build myself a tree"

remember all the promises made and we could not achieve?
the things we whispered to each other and we were blind to see
"we will build ourselves a tree"

all the seeds we gently grew and we have left to die
all the seedlings we have killed now we cannnot deny
all the love that we have tried everything to believe
but all I got is all these branches without leaves

and now I think we are not the ones that we were yesterday
no one can hear us so this time I've got something else to say
"I won't build myself no tree"

all the seeds we gently grew and we have left to die
all the seedlings we have killed now we cannnot deny
all the love that we have tried everything to believe
but all I got is all these branches without leaves

...

all the seedlings we left to die
all the love that we're trying to find
all the things that we dreamt to try
are never coming true
