lyrics

Upon the hill I saw a tree,
a marvel in asymmetry,
and in the craggy mountain’s lee
a stream that whispered, “Swim in me”

Come all you broken-hearted,
come back to where you started.

And by the stream there flew a bee
who gave me honey graciously,
and by a waterfall of tea
a pool that whispered, “Swim in me”

Come all you broken-hearted,
come back to where you started.

The breezes blew a symphony
of sweet and solemn sympathy
through all the branches of the tree
and made them whisper, “Sing with me”

Come all you broken-hearted,
come back to where you started.

You hollow men of misery,
you aren’t where you ought to be.
So if you want to flourish free
drop all your bags and sing with me.

Come all you broken-hearted,
come back to where you started:
the land that love imparted
to all the broken-hearted.
