Lyrics:
 
          Dm
Standing here
The old man said to me 
                           Am
"Long before these crowded streets
Here stood my dreaming tree"
                  Dm
Below it he would sit
For hours at a time
                   Am
Now progress takes away 
What forever took to find
                  Dm
Now he's falling hard
He feels the falling dark
                Am
How he longs to be
Beneath his dreaming tree
                   Dm
Conquered fear to climb
A moment froze in time
                           Am
When the girl who first he kissed
Promised him she'd be his
                    Dm
Remembered mother's words
There beneath the tree
                    Am
"No matter what the world
You'll always be my baby"
            Dm
Mommy come quick
The dreaming tree has died
                  Am
The air is growing thick
A fear he cannot hide
                       Am
The dreaming tree has died

Chorus:

A              G
Oh have you no pity
            F
This thing I do
          G
I do not deny it
                A
All through this smile
             G
As crooked as danger
          F
I do not deny
          D
I know in my mind
                 A
I would leave you now
             G
If I had the strength to
                 F
I would leave you up
            D
To your own devices
              A
Will you not talk 
            G
Can you take pity 
          F
I don't ask much
               D      A
But won't you speak please

Intro X 11

[Verse 2]

From the start
She knew she had it made
Easy up 'til then
For sure she'd make the grade
Adorers came in hordes
To lay down in her wake
She gave it all she had
But treasures slowly fade
Now she's falling hard
She feels the fall of dark
How did this fall apart
She drinks to fill it up
A smile of sweetest flowers
Wilted so and soured
Black tears stain the cheeks
That once were so admired
She thinks when she was small
There on her father's knee 
How he had promised her 
''You'll always be my baby"
"Daddy come quick  
The dreaming tree has died 
I can't find my way home
There is no place to hide  
The dreaming tree has died"
