Oak Tree where The Black Birds Sleep


Oak Tree where The Black Birds Sleep
Bird's fly on high in the mighty winds
winds blew night and day,
what a journey they will face,
On a oak tree they will sleep
hiding in the dark leaves,

dangle a sigh from the crying eyes
of the bumble bee's,
The cold weary night never spoke
but the sound of thunder made
everyone wounder,

groups of attempt to set an scam
their loyal friends,
the night cold winds cry out again,

The oak tree cry's out,
I know you can break my branch
but you will never break me,

Shaking at my limbs, make me sway
but nothing will break my faith,
My roots are to strong don't you see
All my black birds are a sleep,

I grow stronger in the light,
your dark winds don't scare me,
You will never cut me down deep,
The make of me is watching over me,

I'm that little seed that is planted by water
my roots grown deep,
I endure so much of this world,
I'm so much stronger then ever before
I'm that beautiful tree God planted by water,
You will never break me.
