LyricsEdit

I meant to leave the house this morning
And begin making my way toward where you are
I meant to leave the house this morning
I made it halfway across the front yard

But the plum tree hung heavy in my head
And the plum tree hung heavy in my heart
And the plum tree hung heavy over me

So I tore off to the phone
To call you and tell you something, but I couldn't remember what
Because through the clean, clean windows
Saw the plum tree's leaves, as red as fresh blood

And the plum tree hung heavy in my head
And the plum tree hung heavy in my heart
And the plum tree hung heavy over me
