about

This song was included in the "Five Years" compilation but it was the demo version that I recorded right when I got out of bed and wrote it.

The album "Between Two Worlds" expands upon the theme of this song and I wanted to include a cleaner version but still capture the essence of the original demo. I think we did just that. The session that we captured this in was not intended for this song at all. It was around 2AM and my voice was hoarse but the vibe was just right.

lyrics

I Wish I could sing to you a lullaby
I wish I could tell you it's all right
I wish I could find the simple faith of a babe
I wish I hadn't eaten from that tree

I'm overwhelmed by the urgency
and then I just have to breathe
can't catch the words that I need to speak
just have to say what I see

Chorus:
Here we are many miles down the road
still livin lies we been sold
like a walkin bird
don't know that he can fly
still eatin from the tree
- that's why

Father warned
liar lied
didn't take long to decide
and still today we play the game
we think we're free in these chains

Chorus:
Here we are many miles down the road
still livin lies we been sold
like a walkin bird
don't know that he can fly
still eatin from the tree
- that's why

I Wish I could sing to you a lullaby
I wish I could tell you it's all right
I wish I could find the simple faith of a babe
I wish I hadn't eaten from that tree
