Lyrics of the song Lemon Tree by Fool's Garden


I'm sitting here in a boring room

It's just another rainy Sunday afternoon

I'm wasting my time, I got nothing to do

I'm hanging around, I'm waiting for you

But nothing ever happens and I wonder

 

I'm driving around in my car

I'm driving too fast, I'm driving too far

I'd like to change my point of view

I feel so lonely, I'm waiting for you

But nothing ever happens and I wonder

 

I wonder how, I wonder why

Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky

And all that I can see

Is just a yellow lemon tree

 

I'm turning my head up and down

I'm turning, turning, turning, turning, turning around

And all that I can see is just another lemon tree

 

Sing: dah

Da da da da da - di da dah

Da da da da da - di dah dah

Da di di di dah

 

I'm sitting here, I miss the power

I'd like to go out, taking a shower

But there's a heavy cloud inside my head

I feel so tired, put myself into bed

Well nothing ever happens and I wonder

 

Isolation is not good for me

Isolation

I don't want to sit on a lemon tree

 

I'm steppin' around in the desert of joy

Baby, anyhow I'll get another toy

And everything will happen and you'll wonder

 

I wonder how, I wonder why

Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky

And all that I can see is just another lemon tree

I'm turning my head up and down

I'm turning, turning, turning, turning, turning around

And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon tree

 

And I wonder, wonder

 

I wonder how, I wonder why

Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky

And all that I can see

And all that I can see

And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon tree
