Top Of The Tree - Demo - with home made vintage chocolate tin three string strummer

http://bemuzic.bandcamp.com/
Bit of a mid life crisis song, about getting older and stuff : -/...the music's quite upbeat though!.
I'm playing my vintage chocolate tin strummer, which can be seen better on this vid http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=-TgxtJ5yWK0

LYRICS

The sun comes UP, the sun goes DOWN,
and everything is changing all the time.

I breath IN, I breath OUT.
Now you're not here and nothing is the same.

I FILL my glass. I EMPTY it.
We all drink more since you are not around.

You were HERE, then you were GONE,
and I'm still trying hard to understand.

I was YOUNG, now I'm OLD,
and I am at the top of the tree.
Don't wannna be on top of the tree.
Not ready for the top of the tree!!

You know that all things must and will pass..... George Harrison wrote a song for you                                  Sunrise doesnt' last all morning
A cloudburst doesnt't't last all day
Seems my love is up and has left you with no warning
Its not always going to be this grey

All things must pass
All things must pass away

Sunset doesnt't't last all evening
A mind can blow those clouds away
After all this, my love is up and must be leaving
Its not always going to be this grey

All things must pass
All things must pass away
All things must pass
None of lifes strings can last
So, I must be on my way
And face another day

Now the darkness only stays the night-time
In the morning it will fade away
Daylight is good at arriving at the right time
Its not always going to be this grey

All things must pass
All things must pass away
All things must pass
All things must pass away                                               

 I hope you and your's are all good thanks for the Music and Have A Good Christmas

Wal
