Cam – Redwood Tree Lyrics

Redwood Tree By Cam

Oh redwood tree
Don’t you recognize me?
No, it’s not much time for you
Its been decades for me
Oh, Redwood tree
Sorry I had to leave
Eager mind and a teenage heart
Can get hooked on a dream

I saw the world, you saw my parents grow old
You’ve got your roots, and I’ve got the wind, the wind in my soul

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Don’t know what you have when you’re young
Ooh, ooh, ooh
But you’ll know what you had when it’s gone
You’ll know what you had

Old redwood tree
Now it’s just you and me
Back then it was hard to stay and easy to leave
In the soft summer breeze
It’s so simple to see
The time kept ticking back home
While I was living for me

I saw the world, you saw my parents grow old
You’ve got your roots, and I’ve got the wind, the wind in my soul

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Don’t know what you have when you’re young
Ooh, ooh, ooh
But you’ll know what you had when it’s gone
The only thing left of what used to be is you
The only thing left of what used to be is you

Old redwood tree
Don’t you recognize me?

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Don’t know what you have when your young
Ooh, ooh, ooh
But you’ll know what you had when it’s gone
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Don’t know what you have when your young
But you’ll know what you haad when it’s gone

You’ll know what you had
Old redwood tree
