O Spirit Tree
One day, I met a woman on the road

She was frail and she was old

She gave a gift to me

A seed, a tiny seed she gave to me

And told me plant it, you wil see

It will give all you need



O spirit tree, see how it grows high now

O mystery, this gift she gave to me

I eat your fruit, you shelter me, now I see

O spirit tree, you are a mystery



So now, it grows there by the open road

A tree with branches knarled and old

And leaves that shine like gold

And there, beneath the ground you cannot see

The twisted roots of that old tree

Reach for eternity



O spirit tree, see how it grows high now

O mystery, this gift she gave to me

I eat your fruit, you shelter me, now I see

O spirit tree, you are a mystery
