lyrics

I'm standing by you, sapling
This is where you get to grow
I'm standing by you, sapling
In the very spot you chose
I'm standing by you, sapling
No one's going to cut you down when I'm around
I'll leave your branches low
Perfect as they are
One day you might become
A ladder to the stars
Take all the time you want because
No one's going to cut you down when I'm around
Nobody planned on you, but here you are
Changing my landscape
Some say I let this go to far
But when I listen to the birds and to my heart
They favor you
So I'm standing by you, sapling
I'm standing by you, sapling
Taking a picture of us both I can look back on
When you've grown past me, you know
I want that to happen
Want to stand there smiling up, up, up at you
Nobody planned on you, and that's the fun
Changing my landscape
Leaning to the sun
New leaves are turning, and no one's going to cut you down
When I'm around
When I'm around
