Tiger in a Burning Tree Submit Correct Lyrics

A friend of mine woke me up
To tell me about his dream
All the lights in the world went black
He felt like a tiger in a burning tree
It was like he was late for something that he did not want to see
His life looked better on paper, he lives like a tiger in a burning tree

Blow out the candles and make a wish

I thought about a woman from a city in the South
She lost her car when the bottom fell out
She sold her life to the deep blue sea
She left a message for the world to see
She knows better what its like to be a tiger in a burning tree

Close your eyes and take a big deep breath
Blow out the candles and make a wish

When I was a child I painted my toys
Angel blue and devil red
I broke them into pieces, set them on fire, and shoved them under my bed
I never learned how to play nice with all the other kids
I never learned how to draw inside the line and probably never will

Close your eyes and take a big deep breath
Imagine a world so much better than this
Now close your eyes and jump to a place you would think to be
Then you could tell me what it feels like to be
A tiger in a burning tree
