You forgot the first rule of remakes… Don’t fuck with the original!
Boys in the Trees (improv edit)
Improv from Providence, RI 11/17/2002
Cover from Oakland, CA 11/11/2001
So I’m thinking about this lady
Who said to me she wrote this
Yes, she wrote this
When she was feeling like I am today…
Do you go to them or do you let them come to you
Do you stand in back afraid that you’ll intrude
Deny yourself and hope someone will see
And live like a flower
While the boys grew in the trees
Last night I slept in sheets the color of fire
Tonight I lie alone again and curse my own desires
Sentenced first to burn and then to freeze
And watch by the window
Where the boys grew in the trees
Further (Live Piano Version)

Who will be there to remember who We were?
Who will be there to know that any of this had meaning for Us?
I have your heart, it beats inside
it’s only three inches wide.
I have your heart, I have your heart
I have your heart.
