That's the One

Love is the tree you wanted to climb when you were young

The one with the tall trunk and long limbs

Yes, that’s the one

The one with flowering plants and birds

The one that always made the sound you heard

Yes, that’s the one

The one that sang the sad hymns

The one with the falling limbs

Yes, that’s the one

The one that your mother always said no to

The one you always wanted to go to

Yes, that’s the one

The one you climbed in the dark of night

The one that brought you to a fight

Yes, that’s the one

The one that you fell from

The one that made you go numb

Yes, that’s the one

The one you thought was perfect

The one that had you tricked

Yes, that’s the one

Love is the tree that stood tall

Love is the tree that had you in awe

Love is the tree that broke you down

But love is the tree that kept you off the ground

Yes, that’s the one
