Plain White T's - The giving tree Lyrics

All the leaves on the giving tree have fallen
No shade to crawl in, underneath
Iíve got scars from the pocket knife where you carved
Your heart, into me

If all you wanted was love
Why would you use me up?
Cut me down, build a boat and sail away
When all I wanted to be
Was your giving tree
Settle down, build a home and make you happy

I lay in the dead of night
And I've wondered, whoís covers
Youíre between
And its sad laying in his bed you feel hollow
So you crawl home, back to me

If all you wanted was love
Why would you use me up?
Cut me down, build a boat and sail away
When all I wanted to be
Was your giving tree
Settle down, build a home and make you happy

Well I see a trail that starts
A line of broken hearts behind you
That lead you back to me
The one sad and lonely fool
With nothing left but roots to show?
(ooooo)

If all you wanted was love
Why would you use me up?
Cut me down, build a boat, and sail away
When all I wanted to be
Was your giving tree
Settle down, build a home and make you happy
Settle down, build a home and make you happy.
