lyrics

There’s just one twisted tree
High on top of a hill
There’s an old man sitting there
And he’s sitting there still
I’m down in the valley
Drawing water from the well
I’m lost in the river
But I’m gonna climb that hill

So many steps
Such a long way to fall
And when you get to the top
You think you’ll have it all

The years roll like cartwheels
You see stars flame and die
Now you’re sitting alone
Looking down from on high
Then an old man appears
With a gold coin in his hand
As you reach out to take it
His face turns to sand

So many steps
Such a long way to fall
And when you get to the top
You’ll find nothing at all
