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


There's a big symphony

Right before your ears

It's ringing like a hammer

It's beauty will sweep away your fears

Don't close yours ears


And there's a big picture

Right before your eyes

Its vista and its views

Are your bounty and your prize

Don't close your eyes


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

Release all those feelings deep inside

There’s no need to live out others’ dreams

There’s no reason left to hide


Plant a fruit tree of your own

Tend its roots and watch it grow

Reap the bounty of its harvest

Make it yours and watch life flow


There's a big symphony

Right before your ears

It's ringing like a hammer

It's beauty will sweep away your fears

Don't close yours ears


And there's a big picture

Right before your eyes

Its vista and its views

Are your bounty and your prize

Don't close your eyes


Don't close your eyes

Don't close your eyes


There’s a fruit tree in the garden

Magnificent beyond belief
