Cam - Redwood Tree Lyrics

Oh redwood tree
Don't you recognize me
I know it's not much time for you
But it's been decades for me

Oh redwood tree
Sorry I had to leave
An eager mind and a teenage heart
Can get hooked on a dream
I saw the world
You saw my parents grow old
You've got your roots
And I've got the wind
The wind in my soul

OOoooo don't know what you have when you're young
OOooo but you'll know what you had when it's gone
You'll know what you had

Oh redwood tree
Now it's just you and me
Back then it was hard to stay
And easy to leave
In the soft summer breeze
It's so simple to see
That time kept tickin' back home
While I was livin' for me

I saw the world
You saw my parents grow old
You've got your roots
And I've got the wind
The wind in my soul

OOoooo
Don't know what you have when you're young
OOooo but you'll know what you had when it's gone

The only thing left of what used to be is you
The only thing left of what used to be is you

Oh redwood tree
Don't you recognize me

OOoooo don't know what you have when you're young
OOooo but you'll know what you had when it's gone
OOoooo don't know what you have when you're young
OOooo but you'll know what you had when it's gone

You'll know what you had

Old redwood tree
