I wonder how you do that
Standing perfectly still
I only hear your silence
Overcome with fear
I see your leaves quivering
For the slightest hope
That someday it will come.

I pretend I don't hear it's
Screams of terror
Caused by years of neglect
I feel I must help it
For I am the Only one
Who will make sure
That someday it will come

I try to comfort you
Until the day comes
The one where it will arrive
Your wishes will be done
I try to save it
From the shadows
But I know that from the shadows
It will emerge to take us away
And I'll make sure that
Someday it will come

Arisen from the night
Coming to our aid
Taking us away
So we can fade
Away from the darkness
Of our home

The light will shine upon us-
The willow and I
Have been betrayed
Making sure

That Someday It Will Come
