Tree House

Lyricist: Ed McGee
Vocalist: Ed McGee
She says, "I can't wait!  It'll be great,
we're going to the tree house!"
He hesitates, "I'm not sure,
haven't been that way before."

Up above the ground, a new sound:
bird's eye fools.
Climb the ladder rung by rung,
hear the tree house rules:
	1.  We will never grow up.
	2.  We will always be friends.
	3.  If you join the club, you're in till the end.
	4.  Be careful who you tell, we don't want everyone to know.
	5.  Hold on to the tree house when the big winds blow.

She says, "here we are!  Look at the stars,
this is the tree house!"
He rolls his eyes, "look at the time,
must be losing my mind."

Up above the ground, a green sound:
tree top jewels.
Climb the rope, join the club,
heed the tree house rules:
	1.  We will never grow up.
	2.  We will always be friends.
	3.  If you join the club, you're in till the end.
	4.  Be careful who you tell, we don't want everyone to know.
	5.  Hold on to the tree house when the big winds blow.

Barbie dolls and comic books,
ghost stories, cops and crooks,
crystal sunlight through the trees,
summers stolen, children thieves.
But summers fade and youth, at last,
pricker bushes block the path,
moss has covered nearly all
five rules on the wall.

But two at seventeen return
to soothe some amazing burn,
or to maybe fan the flame,
or maybe it's the same.
So passion ends the precious game,
 and they will not return again,
something's lost and something's gained,
and there the tree house remains.

She says, "I can't wait!  It'll be great,
we're going to the tree house!"
He smiles at the sky, "now I feel love
and I won't feel low up above."
