Leaves & Lovers

November 27, 2017

Did you know that if you stethoscope a tree, you can hear the hum of its heartbeat shivering down each sinewy spine, the tangle and turn of its watery threads, you can hear each snap and snarl?

 

I’ve always been really inspired by the humble-hearted wisdom and resilience of trees - they can do fascinating things like self-amputate, self-combust or even commit suicide to save themselves from shrivelling up.

 

'Leaves and Lovers' is written from the perspective of a tree who’s lost its leaves, stripped back to bare bone, haunted by the memory of warmth like a person may be towards a past lover. I don’t think I’ve ever written a song or a poem where reflection on their beauty hasn’t crept in.
