Climbing Frame (Acoustic)

lyrics

Listen everybody there's something I have seen
I was just out walking and I stumbled 'cross this scene
It was very simple but it still held my glance
We city folk head to the park to be amongst the plants
At times the world is stifling
And it is hard to breathe
But you can find oxygen
If you just find some leaves
I can feel dejected
Life pulls apart my seams
But they built a climbing frame
Out of a fallen tree

They turned a fallen tree into a climbing frame
They turned a fallen tree into a climbing frame

Some kids were climbing under
Others were branching out
No-ones doing guest list
'Cause everyone's allowed
A dog barked at the bark
Squirrel watched with caution
Sunbathers ignored them
Parents hide exhaustion
One child just hugs it
One says 'I'm the captain'
There wasn't an election
'Cause no-ones doing admin
We all just grow upwards and get further from our roots
But the giant trees that line our streets
Started with a shoot

They turned a fallen tree into a climbing frame
They turned a fallen tree into a climbing frame

I don't know how it had fallen
I don't think they knew either
Had it been the wind?
Or perhaps munched down by a beaver
I know it would have stood there
Maybe a hundred years
I'd love to hear it's stories
If it could whisper in my ears
One day we'll be horizontal
Like a half empty cup
But because they are smaller
Things are always looking up
They weren't trying to be symbolic
They were just having a laugh
But where most saw an obstacle
They just saw a path

They turned a fallen tree into a climbing frame
They turned a fallen tree into a climbing frame
