Andrew Preston – Redwood Lyrics

I met a man at the age of nineteen,
Red as a wildfire,
Strong as a king.
Together we sewed
Our seedling as deep
As our roots would take us,
And our hands would reach.

CHORUS:
Oh, redwood, if I could tear you down I would, I would.
Oh, redwood, I should.
But you’re here with me for good.

In the recess of a downpour,
Our pride and joy grew,
And in the arbor, we slept,
Aloft in the dew.
I woke and I wept,
I knew not he’d live on.
The redwood, it stands,
Long after you’ve gone.

CHORUS:
Oh, redwood, if I could tear you down I would, I would.
Oh, redwood, I should.
But you’re here with me for good.

I don’t know if I’d miss the shade of the wood,
Or the endlessness of your eyes.
Sometimes I think that I was born for the road.
But if ever I travel, I turn
To my haven, so pristine.
The sturdy, the tall, wild,
My angel,
And it’s no good, Redwood.

CHORUS:
Oh, redwood, if I could tear you down I would, I would.
Oh, redwood, I should.
But you’re here with me for good.
