In My Tree - Pearl Jam


Up here in my tree, yeah
Newspapers matter not to me, yeah
No more crowbars to my head, yeah
I'm tradin' stories with the leaves instead, yeah

Wave to all my friends, yeah
They don't seem to notice me, no
All their eyes trained on the street, yo, oh
Sidewalk, cigarettes and seen the tempted yeah

It's up here so high, I start to mistake
Up here so high in the sky, I scrape
I'm so high I hold just one breath
A deep breath in my chest, just like innocence

I remember when, yeah
I swore I blew everything away
Let's say knowledge is a tree, yeah
It's growin' up just like me, yeah

I'm so light, the wind he shakes
And I'm so high up in the sky, I scrape, yeah
I'm so high, I hold just one breath
To go back to my nest, sleeping innocence

Up here so high, the boughs may break
Up here so high in the sky I sway
And my eyes peeled both wide open
And I got a glimpse of my innocence
Got back my innocence, really got it, still got it
