A Thousand Trees [live]

Are you all doing alright?
It's good to see you
It's a song from the
Word Gets Around album
This song's called
A Thousand Trees

Standing at the bus stop
With my shopping in my hands
When I’m overhearing
Elder ladies
As the rumours start to fly
Hear them in the schoolyard
In the scrap yard
In the chip shop
In the phone box
In the pool hall
At the shoe stall
Every corner turned around

It started with a schoolgirl
Who was running
Running home to her Mam and Dad
Told them she was playing
In the change room
Of her local football side
They said tell us again
She told them again
Tell us the truth
They found it hard to believe
'Cause he taught our Steve
Even trained me
Taught uncle John who's a a father of three

Only takes on tree
To make a thousand matches
Only takes one match
To burn a thousand trees
Thousand trees

See it in the class room
Or the swimming pool
Where the matchstick men are made
At the scouts' hall
At the football
Where the wise we trust are paid
They all honour his name
Did a lot for the game
Got his name knocked up above the sports ground gates
Now they're ripping them down
Stamping the ground
Picture gathers dust in the bar in the lounge

It takes one tree
To make a thousand matches
Only takes one match
To burn a thousand trees
Thousand trees

Wake up smell the rain
Shake up he's back to stay
Hasn't been on a holyday
Growing seeds don't believe why he's been away

In the school yard
Change room
Playing fields bathroom
Phone box
Office blocks
Corners turned around
They keep doubting the flame
Tossing the blame
Got his name knocked up above the sports ground gates
Now they're ripping them down
Stamping the ground
Picture gathers dust in the bar in the lounge

It takes one tree
To make a thousand matches
Only takes one match
To burn a thousand trees
Thousand trees
Thousand trees
Thousand trees

Thank you
