about

There was an apple orchard behind the house I grew up in. I spent endless hours back there and it was the only place I felt safe enough to sing. So that's where I would sing, hiding my love for music from the world because of silly, silly embarrassment until I was fourteen.

lyrics

In an orchard of apple trees
That is where you could find me
How I loved them
I still love them

Hours, days, months, and years
Those branches took away my fears
How they held me
They still hold me

Nothing you could say or do
Could ever change how I feel about you
I’ll always hold you dear
My innocence is what you keep near

The world only heard my hum
Nothing more than “hmmm mmmmm mmmmm”

But amongst those trees I could sing
I had to let my little soul ring
And they would listen
Softly listen

Nothing you could say or do
Could ever change how I feel about you
I’ll always hold you dear
My innocence is what you keep near

Well I was too young to know
Just how much you helped me to grow
I’ll always hold you dear
You gave me my voice
And you taught me to hear

I was too young to know
Just how much you helped me to grow
I’ll always hold you dear
You gave me my voice
And you taught me to hear

How long it has been
Since I was a child within those limbs
Feeling safer than the safest I could be
Well in my heart I’m still with those trees
And even today that is where you’ll find me
When I’m singin’ really singin’

Nothing you could say or do
Could ever change how I feel about you
I’ll always hold you dear
My innocence is what you keep near
