Up here in my tree, yeah
Newspapers matter not to me, yeah
No more crowbars to my head, yeah
I'm trading stories with the leaves instead, yeah

Wave to all my friends, yeah
They don't seem to notice me, no
All their eyes trained on the street, yo, oh
Sidewalk cigarettes and scenes, (tem-pted)
Up here so high I start to shake
Up here so high the sky I scrape
I'm so high I hold just one breath here within my chest
Just like innocence

(Eddie's down in his home)
(Oh, the blue sky it's his home)
(Eddie's blue sky home)
(Oh, the blue sky it's his home)

I remember when, yeah
I swore I knew everything, oh yeah
Let's say knowledge is a tree, yeah
It's growing up just like me, yeah
I'm so light the wind he shakes
I'm so high the sky I scrape
I'm so light I hold just one breath and go back to my nest
Sleep with innocence...

Up here so high the boughs they break
Up here so high the sky I scrape
Had my eyes peeled both wide open, and I got a glimpse
Of my innocence... got back my inner sense...
Baby got it, still got it
"Wind in my hair, I feel part of everywhere..."

    Yeah, short-haired Eddie. A friend of mine made a terrible remark once about 2003 Eddie having a "Fantastic Sam's" haircut, and about how rock stars should have long, crazy hair and not look like accountants. Blah, blah. Between you and me, he looks like no accountant I've ever met! ;)

    I'm gonna live in a house someday with a tree in the middle..you will enter from a rounded door at the trunk of the tree. there will be a honeymoon sweet where the ceiling is the tree itself rounded into a dome to do laser shows for the couple in the bed of velvet below.

    Can you tell this song has inspired the interior decorator in me. lol

    I've never been involved in the drummer controversy cuz they all had their strong points but, Jack played the fuck out of this song. Matt does a good job with it, but nothing like Jack.

    Im not intentionally starting a drummer argument......I like them all!

    I do get what you say thow.
    This song would not have been possible without Jack.
    He really had something special.
    And In my tree is one of the songs that show his style best I believe.

    I was so excited when they played In my tree at my forth show.
    I am bias off corse, but I do feel this is the best version I have heard with Jeff opening.

    It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.

  • Thinking about the lyrics to this song in view of Eddie revealing (at one of the Seattle shows) that Even Flow was inspired by a homeless person who was also named Eddie.

    Could the Eddie in this song be the same guy? Or are we sure it's PJ Eddie?
