Fruit Tree

 

Lyrics

There’s a fruit tree in the garden

Magnificent beyond belief

It’s golden fruit is bursting
But you just see a single leaf


And there’s a new star in the Heavens

It’s eruption blinds the sky

But what forged this supernova

You fail to ask or wonder why


If I handed you a paintbrush

Would your canvas overflow

With the passion of a starburst

Or would your vision fail to show


And if I handed you the whole world

Would you carve in flesh or stone

Would you people it with new life

Or would you stand there all alone


Open up your mind and release

All those feelings deep inside

There’s no need to live out others’ dreams

There’s no reason left to hide


Go and plant a fruit tree of your own

Tend its roots and watch it grow

Then reap the bounty of its harvest

Make it yours and watch it flow



(Gary Miller)
