Don't love nobody but the trees,
People smile but they don't stay.
Guess nobody cares for me,
Shoulda been gone yesterday.
I don't know why I'm so alone,
Got no friends but the sky.
I've been around a hundred years
But I'll be gone by and by.
I want so much for you to stay,
But if you can't then don't try.
I'll hold you softly while I can
And I'll love you till I die.
Guess I'll go by the sea,
Got some friends in the rolling tide.
The shining sands will comfort me
And the gentle waves will wash my eyes.
