lyrics

I was at the wishing well, I was wishing well
My silver coin glancing off flaming golden brick
A man of alcohol and aldehyde
Rose up from deep below and kissed me on the cheek
And he said
“I was at the wishing well
Bringing back the spirits of the dead"
But my words all fell upon deaf ears
So follow me and let me tell you what I said, I said

This is everything I wanted
This is everything I ever need
By the time yesterday has started
We’ll become one with the trees.”

We wandered deeper then, deeper into the forest
The trees all giving was to flashing fields of wheat
No words from me of from my odd ghostly companion
“till he turned to ma and let me tell you what he said
He said
“Everything is greener now
Now I see the forest for the trees”
Then he melted back into the ground
I looked away and let me tell you what I said, I said

"This is everything I wanted
This is everything I ever need
By the time yesterday has started
We’ll become one with the trees.
This is everything I wanted
This is everything I ever need
By the time yesterday has started
You’ll become one with the trees."
