10,000 TREES

Words and music by Sheila Kirsten Hughes


the hour's late
the sky grows dark
fear is getting the best of us

with trembling hands
we're reaching out
for someone, but no one's there
this road has been empty for miles and miles

ten thousand hands
could break the stones
we used to build this place

ten thousand words
could bring it down
if only we believed
and we'd run toward our best
give it all that we've got

why you people runnin'
from the hopes and dreams that set your lives in motion
if you give them up you'll
wake up slowly, step into the fire
all our happily ever afters goin' up in smoke
like 10,000 trees burnin'

ten thousand dreams
are burning down
to ashes, yet no one hears
that still small voice inside of us
cryin' out for something real
so tired of pretending we're something we're not

why you people runnin'
from the hopes and dreams that set your lives in motion
if you give them up you'll
wake up slowly, step into the fire
all your happily ever afters goin' up in smoke
like 10,000 trees burnin'

10,000 trees are going down
10,000 lights are fading out
10,000 dreams kicked to the ground
10,000 lights are going out
don't be afraid, no, no
don't you lose your way, no, no
there is a place for you and I
where all our dreams will come alive
so run toward your best, give it all that you've got

why you people runnin'
from the hopes and dreams that set your lives in motion
if you give them up you'll
wake up slowly, step into the fire
all your happily ever afters goin' up in smoke
like 10,000 trees burnin'
