the little cypress tree lyrics – nana mouskouri

the cypress tree stands all alone
and casts a shadow of its own
and in the shallow of the tree
i hear the lies you told to me

and like the cypress tree i stand alone
i love for keeps,you love for fun
i could not melt your heart of stone
you’ re gone, now i’ m the lonely one
like the cypress tree in the setting sun

we stood beneath the cypress tree
t’was there you vowed your love for me
but vows to you were empty words
well i believed each lie i heard

and like the cypress tree, i stand alone
i love for keeps,you love for fun
i could not melt your heart of stone
you’re gone, now i’m the lonely one
like the cypress tree in the setting sun

like the cypress tree in the setting sun
like the cypress tree in the setting sun
