TREE OF HEARTS

ON A TREE INSIDE A HEART
A DULL BOY SCOUT KNIFE TOOK
HALF A DAY TO CARVE
MICHAEL LOVES CAROLINE
HE'D JUST TURNED TEN AND SHE WAS NINE

THE SUMMER SHE TURNED SWEET SIXTEEN
HE FINALLY FOUND HIS NERVE AND TOOK
HER OUT TO SEE
AND WHAT SHE SAW THROUGH HER TEARS
WAS SEVEN HEARTS FOR SEVEN YEARS

AND THEY STOOD BENEATH THE TREE OF HEARTS
AND THEY WATCHED THEIR FEELINGS GROW
AND THEY SWORE THEY'D NEVER BE APART
TRUE LOVE LEFT IT'S MARK
ON THE TREE OF HEARTS

THE TENTH TIME HE CARVED THEIR NAMES
CAROLINE'S DAD WAS GIVING HER AWAY
THERE BENEATH THE SHELTER OF
THE TREE OF HEARTS THEY PLEDGED
THEIR LOVE

AND THEN FOUR HEARTS DOWN THE ROAD
THEY BROUGHT THE FIRST OF TWO BORN HOME

AND THEY PLAYED BENEATH THE TREE OF HEARTS
AND THEY WATCHED THEIR CHILDREN GROW
AND THEY SWORE THEY'D NEVER BE APART
TRUE LOVE LEFT IT'S MARK
ON THE TREE OF HEARTS

IN THE BLINKING OF AN EYE
SOMEHOW FIFTY-SEVEN HEARTS FLEW BY

FIFTY-EIGHT, FIFTY-NINE
SIXTY HE MISSED CAROLINE
AT SIXTY-ONE MICHAEL KNEW
THERE WOULDN'T BE A SIXTY-TWO

NOW THEY LAY BENEATH THE TREE OF HEARTS
AN YOU CAN WATCH THEIR LOVE STILL GROW
WHERE THEY SWORE THEY'D NEVER BE APART
TRUE LOVE LEFT ITS MARK
ON MY TREE OF HEARTS
