Charlies tree

 

 

Once upon a long long time I saw things with a different mind

Trying just to be a part of this society

But then I saw your faces, and those superficial graces

I can understand why thereís no place for you and me

 

You guys know the way to play your daddy wrote the rules

We just hang along here for the ride

Maybe we were dreaming, in that you we should believe in

We can see the faces that you know that you canít hide

 

An I feel alright, cause Iíve seen the light

It fell down on me just like Charlieís tree

I donít need no sad illusion or some dreamer of confusion

I can find my own solution, anyway.

 

Yes I feel alright I can sleep at night

I got so much more than I ever had before

I can hold my head up high, to any other guy

I can look you in the eye and keep on smiling

 

Maybe you have those things they say that you must buy

You may have your diamond rings and tickets for the sky

You may have the colour, the flavour of the day

You may have the look but you donít really know the way

 

You wear the latest; youíre a person of design

You have your Island home fine restaurants to dine

You may give to charity and pennies to the poor

But you donít really understand just what weíre fighting for

 

But you feel alright, can you sleep at night

You got so much more, than you deserve

Can you hold your head up high, to any other?

My,  can you look me in the eye and keep on smiling

 

Yes I feel alright, I can sleep at night

I got so much more, than I ever had before

I can hold my head up high, to any other guy

I can look you in the eye and keep on smiling

 

 

Iíd like to show you things, and places you could go

Iíd like to help you but thereís something you should know

All the games are easy if you donít obey the rules

Life and all itís problems there just there for all the fools

 

Yes I feel alright, cause Iíve seen the light

It fell down on me, just like Charlieís tree

I donít need no sad illusion or some dreamer of confusion

I can find my own solution, any way.

Yes I feel alright I can sleep at night Ö.
