lyrics

There's a grove that stands tall in a clearing
Redwood clings to the earth and scratches the sky
The family name is carved within there
They baptized me in champagne and good cheer
There in the shade of the grove

I've lived a life of many loves
I've laughed with friends and family at my side
I've traveled the world
And I married a girl
But lately I've been haunted by by the grove

Leave me in the grove
Let the rain wash the flesh from my broken body
Leave me in the grove
Let the sun bleach my tired bones
Let time and decay push my mortal remains
Down deeper into the grove


Lately my travels have dwindled to nothing
And my home has swept me aside
My body and spirit have let me down
Or perhaps it's the other way round
But now I just want to lay there in the grove

Leave me in the grove
Like my father before me
Leave me in the grove
So my body can dwell with my soul
Let time and decay push my mortal remains
Down deeper into the grove

Let time and decay push the joy and the horror away
Leave me in peace in the grove

Sometimes I feel the only place that I won't be turned away
Is there in the ground in the grove
