The Beach Boys - A day in the life of a tree

English

A day in the life of a tree

Feel the wind burn through my skin
The pain, the air is killing me
For years my limbs stretched to the sky
A nest for birds to sit and sing
 
But now my branches suffer
And my leaves don't bear the glow
They did so long ago
 
One day I was full of life
My sap was rich and I was strong
From seed to tree I grew so tall
Through wind and rain I could not fall
 
But now my branches suffer
and my leaves don't offer
Poetry to men of song
 
Trees like me weren't meant to live
If all this world can give
Pollution and slow death
 
Oh Lord I lay me down
No life's left to be found
There's nothing left for me
 
Trees like me weren't meant to live
If all this earth can give
Is pollution
 
Trees like me weren't meant to live
(Oh Lord I lay me down)
If all this earth can give
(My branches to the ground)
Is pollution and slow death
(There's nothing left for me)
 
Oh Lord I lay me down
My branches to the ground
There's nothing left for me
