lyrics

VERSE 1
Look at you, looking at me with those trusting eyes
You're making me believe in me
In my arms, resting you lay with so little care
Just knowing I am here
And if a trait of nature fell to me
I know what I'd wish it to be

CHORUS
I want to be the tallest tree
Standing in your world
One who you can look up to
Whose branches spread and cover you
One who grows more every year
So you can see the view from here
If life will grant me just one thing
I'm gonna be your tallest tree

VERSE 2
Look at you, lavishing me as if I were a king
I'm sure I don't deserve this
So many dreams, so many things you seem to see in me
And that you're helping me to see
But can I really live up to, the faith I feel in you

CHORUS
I want to be the tallest tree
Standing in your world
One who you can look up to
Whose branches spread and cover you
One who grows more every year
So you can see the view from here
If life will grant me just one thing
I'm gonna be your tallest tree

BRIDGE
And if a trait of nature ever were to fall to me
I know what I would pray, I'd ask for just one thing

CHORUS
I'm gonna be the tallest tree, in your world
Whose branches spread and cover you
One who grows more every year
So you can see the view
I'm gonna stand sure and strong
I'll never leave, I'm rooted down
You can rest in the truth
Of always knowing I love you
If God will grant me this one thing
I'm gonna be your tallest tree
