lyrics

TWO TREES

Duke and Daphne Vega / Will Kimbrough

My true love was sent away
And the phone rang yesterday
Helpless when I got the call
He might not come back at all

I fell down and when I woke
It was like some wicked joke
Shook so hard and to my shame
Couldn’t even write my name

Two trees growing intertwined
Beautiful and tall combined
Strong enough for what will come
Two trees standing strong as one

I had one boy sick in need
And one man at Walter Reed
Burned my tires up on the road
It’s what you call survival mode

Hardest place I’ve ever been
Learned to walk and talk again
Once more I became a man
And went back to Afghanistan

Two trees growing intertwined
Beautiful and tall combined
Strong enough for what will come
Two trees standing strong as one

I was terrified and alone
Right back in the danger zone
Six month long panic attack
Then I got my baby back

Bureaucracy and paper trails
I got my pink slip in the mail
But I keep on keeping on
Let bygones be good and gone

Two trees growing intertwined
Beautiful and tall combined
Strong enough for what will come
Two trees standing strong as one
