xylem is how the trees drink
yeah i'd watch you suck a straw the whole long day
roots are how the trees drink
though i know you'd never put em down anyway

but if it started storming
maybe would you stay just for the morning
and if it should become winter
maybe you might stay while the trees are thinner

xylem is how the trees drink
you know i'd bring you a cold pitcher of lemonade
roots are how the trees drink
yeah i'd bring you whatever you wanted if you stayed

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

What a very wonderfully unique image - xylem indeed! A pleasant melody too. Great song.

I could listen to this over and over. It is sooooo beautiful. Right up my street and love your voice and guitar.. it has such a sense of longing to it.. so simple yet so effective. Thank you

this is beautiful - love the imagery in the lyrics.

Lovely. Simple but bouncy rhythm, deceptively catchy. Same with the lyrics, deceptively clever, in a casual sort of way.
This is really economical. You couldn't take out a single note or word of it. Really liked it.
