lyrics

Above this tree it’s raining hard
the thunder cracks will stop your heart
but it’s dry here under the apricot tree
my baby and me

above the rain the clouds are dark
they cast long shadows across the park
but it’s dry here under the apricot tree
just you and me

above the clouds the sun is hot
there’s never shade no place to sit
no trees no grass no lemonade
just burning sun and dripping sweat
but it’s dry here under the apricot tree
my baby and me

above the sun is empty space
cold and bleak and miserable
and if you leave your rocketship
you’ll turn into an icicle
but it’s dry here under the apricot tree
just you and me

we don’t need a lot just you and me
we don’t even need an apricot tree
cause when the world is dark and dreary
when our lives have left us weary
all I need’s your memory
and a single seed
to plant a tree.
