The Willow - Julie Matthews
From the Album ‘Intuition’ Various artists


It was underneath the weeping willow tree
Where you swore undying love for me
How sweet the promise that could never be
How sweet the dream we never came to see

I sat beneath the willow tree and wept
For promises we made and never kept
A tear for every footstep as you left
Beneath the willow tree I sat and wept

Who can know the thought and secrets of the heart?
That tears a love to pieces and apart
That leaves a stone where once a flower grew
That turns the world a deeper shade of blue

I sat beneath the willow tree and wept
For promises we made and never kept
A tear for every footstep as you left
Beneath the willow tree I sat and wept

It was underneath our weeping willow tree
She lay within your arms so peacefully
I stood upon the hill and watched you there
You never saw me through her golden hair

I sat beneath the willow tree and wept
For promises we made and never kept
A tear for every footstep as you left
Beneath the willow tree I sat and wept

Beneath our willow tree I sat and wept
