People Are Like Trees - lyrics and chords


Drop D tuning, capo 3

It seems like [1]people are like [4]trees
with a heart that [1]grows like a [6m]sapling from a [5]seed
they always [4]reach for the sun[1]light
[4] for the [1]sunlight with their [5]leaves
but [4]once a seed is [1]planted
it seems a [5]tree can only [1]grow [57]        [1]        [1]        [57]        [1]  

There are [1]ceder that still [6]grow up [5]even when they’ve [1]fallen down
and [1]folks that grow like [6]oaks [5]nothing seems to [1]slow them down

There are noble douglas fir twenty-five feet around
and patient juniper that stay close to the ground

[1]Sometimes people change but they [5]usually seem [4] to stay the [1]same
[1]people change their names but their [5]habits [4] they [5]remain
so [3m]don’t fool your[1]self, if you [5]want something to [2m]change
it’s gonna [6m]take something to [3m]make it[4]        [1]change

Because [1]people are like [4]trees
with a heart that [1]grows like a [6m]sapling from a [5]seed
they always [4]reach for the sun[1]light
[4] for the [1]sunlight with their [5]leaves
but [4]once a seed is [1]planted
it seems a [5]tree can only [1]grow [57]        [1]        [1]        [57]        [1]  


There are shining maple shoots, with tiny leaves and tender roots
they're quick to learn and keen to fruit, but no match for a careless boot

Things that come upon the young ones are seldom easily undone
hearts can grow and overcome, but they always know where they started from

[1]Sometimes people change but they [5]usually seem [4] to stay the [1]same
[1]people change their names but their [5]habits [4] they [5]remain
so [3m]don’t fool your[1]self, if you [5]want something to [2m]change
it’s gonna [6m]take something to [3m]make it[4]        [1]change

Because [1]people are like [4]trees
with a heart that [1]grows like a [6m]sapling from a [5]seed
they always [4]reach for the sun[1]light
[4] for the [1]sunlight with their [5]leaves
but [4]once a seed is [1]planted
it seems a [5]tree can only [1]grow [57]        [1]        [1]        [57]        [1]  


Some are stout and some are slender, some grow straight and other benter
some are solid wood, others are soft at the centre

but a little sunlight and a little water, a little shelter from the weather
just a little love, can really really matter

Because [1]people are like [4]trees
with a heart that [1]grows like a [6m]sapling from a [5]seed
they always [4]reach for the sun[1]light
[4] for the [1]sunlight with their [5]leaves
but [4]once a seed is [1]planted
it seems a [5]tree can only [1]grow [57]        [1]        [1]        [57]        [1]
