ForestNation Song Lyrics

VERSE 1

Even if the world were to end tomorrow or yesterday I’d plant my redwood tree and thank the earth today I’d touch the fire & waters, thank the cycles of nature I can only live because life lives If I want to change the future, turn enemies to friends I’ve got to learn about how to love the earth again! Trees teach me …

CHORUS

If I want a change, I need to look within Plant a seed and dream a new world to begin Water my family tree Find the ForestNation breathing If I truly love something, I’ve got to set it Free! Tree!

VERSE 2

Let me tell you a story about when I was a kid Coming up between a stalk and a hard place, you dig? I loved staring at the clouds through the holes in the leaves I loved the trees in the breeze the most of everything my friends and I would kick it in the leaves grab some fruit, call to the birds and dream …

CHORUS

If I want a change, I need to look within Plant a seed and dream a new world to begin Water my family tree Find the ForestNation breathing If I truly love something, I’ve got to set it Free! Tree!

VERSE 3

I remember the year that trees got cut down My neighborhood went from wild things and animals To banks, factories, and shopping malls An army of bulldozers turned flowers and bees Into pavement, sidewalks, car screechin’ wheels 22 fast restaurants in a 2 mile distance And it all happened in a blink of an instance I know my story sounds just like mine… But think about these kids worldwide who have lost their olive trees to the walls of time Or the clear cutting that chopped the rainforests Whole habitats lost like indigenous Climate burns like an extinction chorus Deserts and storms where there used to be brontosaurus fossils fooled like a dinosaur thesaurus It’s why we’re too scared to think of the oldest, why we’re too fast to think of the tortoise!

CHORUS

If I want a change, I need to look within Plant a seed and dream a new world to begin Water my family tree Find the ForestNation breathing If I truly love something, I’ve got to set it Free! Tree!

If I want a change, I need to look within Plant a seed and dream a new world to begin Water my family tree Find the ForestNation breathing If I truly love something, I’ve got to set it Free! Tree!

VERSE 4

So, dear class of the future, today, I ask you: “what do you want to be when you grow up?!” Could you be a giving back tree? Rich with fruit and leaves of real money, Offering gifts with every breath that you breathe? Could you be a different world to dream? Turning off the TV and planting a TreeV Watching Channel Thirty Tree Using your watch called eternitree If love grows us, could we be forever free? A full embrace of what it means just to be…a tree!

CHORUS

If I want a change, I need to look within Plant a seed and dream a new world to begin Water my family tree Find the ForestNation breathing If I truly love something, I’ve got to set it Free! Tree!
