10000 MANIACS - Cherry Tree Lyrics
[ robert buck/natalie merchant ]Over your shoulder, please don't mind meIf my eyes have fallen onto your magazineFor I've been watching and wonderingWhy your face is changing with every line you read.All those lines and circles, to me, a mystery.Eve pull down the apple and give taste to me.If she would be wonderful, but my pride is in the way.I cannot read to save my life, I'm so ashamed to say.I live in silence, afraid to speakOf my life of darkness because I cannot read.For all those lines and circles, to me, a mystery.Eve pull down the apple and give taste to me.If she could it would be wonderful.Then I wouldn't need someone else's eyes to see what's in front of me.No one guiding me.It makes me humble to be so greenAt what every kid can do when he learns a to z,But all those lines and circles just frighten meAnd I fear that I'll be trampled if you don't reach for me.Before I run I'll have to take a fall.And then pick myself up, so slowly I'll devour every one of those books in the tower of knowledge.
