    ONCE PLANTED AS A SEED
    TO SPROUT OUT WITH GROWTH
    TO BE STRONG INDEED
    STANDING AS TALL AS CAN BE
    JUST WATCH ME OVER THE YEARS
    TO BRING FORTH FRUIT
    AND OFF SPRINGS
    FROM MY ROOTS.

    I SHALL BRANCH OUT
    I WILL STAND AND NOT WHITHER AWAY
    BECAUSE GOD IS SHINNING ON ME
    TO PROVIDE FOR OTHERS
    U SEE...

    I'M HERE TO BE SOMEONE'S HIDING PLACE
    TO CARVE THEIR NAME IN LOVE
    TO GIVE OXYGEN TO BREATH
    TO BE THAT PAPER U DROP YOUR LINES OF POETRY
    U SEE...
    THAT FUNITURE U SIT OR LAY ON
    THAT DESK TO HOLD YA COMPUTER
    THAT TELEPHONE TO TALK TO YA PEEPS
    OR EVEN THE TABLE U EAT DINNER AT
    YEAH, THAT'S ME AND I'M ALL DAT.

    I'M A TREE FOR LIFE...

    I AM THAT TREE U PLAY HIDE-N-SEEK
    I AM THAT TREE WHERE U HAD YOUR FIRST PICNIC MEET
    I AM THAT TREE U DID YOUR HOMEWORK AT
    TO MEET THAT GIRL/BOY AT THE DROP OF A HAT.

    I'M HOLDING UP AT THE STILL WATERS RUNNING DEEP
    SWAYING TO THE RHYTHEMS OF THE SEASONAL BEATS
    I MAY BREAK DOWN TO THE WINTER STORM
    AND WHITHER TO THE SUMMERS HEAT
    BUT I WILL REPLENISH MYSELF
    ON THE STRENGTH OF GOD'S MERCY
    THAT HE WILL PROVIDE
    U SEE...

    I'M A TREE FOR LIFE

    BENDING BACK AND FORTH
    TO LIFE'S OCCASSIONAL PROBLEMS
    BUT TO MY GOD HE WILL SOLVE THEM,
    A FEW BRANCHES FALL HERE AND THERE
    BUT THAT'S OK
    CAUSE MY LIFE IS STILL SPARED
    SPARED FOR ANOTHER TIME TO BE ME
    FOR WHICH I WAS TO BE
    THE HOME FOR SOME BIRD TO RAISE HIS OWN
    FOR THE SQUIRREL TO STORE HIS NUTS
    SO ONCE AGAIN LIFE IS TO REPLENISH ITSELF
    AS A ENDLESS TESTIMONY
    U SEE...

    I'M A TREE FOR LIFE
