Lower Than the Trees
Words and Music by Marty Shaughnessy

Took a day off work today
Try to find some words to sing
Replace all the rusty strings inside my head
If I told you what was on my mind
You wouldn’t look at me with the same eyes
It’s so hard sometimes to be yourself these days

In the shade I close my eyes, lifting doubts up to the sky
I’m slowly learning how to let them fly away
But trusting is the hardest part
And knowing where to begin
There’s still candles in my heart burning, and I still slip

But sometimes...La la la la, there’s nothing I can say but la, la, la

So shine your light down upon my face
Amazing grace, how sweet the sound...I spin around you
As the sun drops down, lower than the trees
I still see and I’m gonna trust you as much as I can

In my car I drive alone and turn on my radio
I hear a familiar voice that somewhat beckons me
To kiss the stars above, and show the world love
To turn myself against myself sometimes (If I have to)

But sometimes...La la la la, there’s nothing I can say to make this go away
