Bending like a tree in the wind

Searching for a place to begin

Try to please all, or no one but me, to feel this way

Time entangles all the other things to get in the way

  

What to choose to live for today

All the rest are meaningless anyway

Without you

Without you in my wigwam

You, only you

  

To me, the base to rise to the point

So symbolic like the bend of a joint

An elbow rising out of the sand to show me the way

I try to juggle all the balls in my hand and spinning plates

Come crashing down all around my wigwam

Letting go...

  

Hard to do but when do you learn, the only way is to watch it burn

Hard to do but when do you learn, the only way is to watch it burn...

Without you in my wigwam

You, only you

Bending, like a tree in the wind

Bending, like a tree in the wind

Bending

The Story of 'Tree In The Wind'

This one is about always trying to please everyone else and then getting tired from doing that and so ending up bending the other way to only try to please yourself instead! But also realising that sometimes it's all a bit meaningless without that other important person in your life being there with you in your "wigwam". The subject was my then wife and I wrote this one for her

You could also take it that that other important person was actually you all along...
