Taller Than My Tree

Something in your eyes,
Something in my shame.
Something in the way
You never said my name.

Do you think I would be
Taller than my tree?
Do you think this is
All there is to me?

I know my shadow.
I am my shadow.
I am a shadow.
I am a tree.
I know what my tag says.
I want to hear it from you.
I am a tree.
I am a shadow.
I am my shadow.
I know my shadow.

Do you think I would fly
High across the sky?
Do you think this is
What I'm here for?

Something in the way
You never said my name.
Something in your eyes,
Something in my shame.

An aborted attempt to explain the difference between me and a bunch of others (OK, armies of others) and how I grew up to be like this and so on. Could be much better.

My tree is about four to five storeys tall. As in, very tall.
