"Underneath My Tree" (formerly known as “Song in “D”” or “D Song”) is the tenth track from Pasadena by Ozma.

Appearances

Overview

“Underneath My Tree” was originally demoed in 2003 under the working title ‘Song in "D"', before it eventually saw release on Pasadena in 2007. The song was first played live by Ozma in 2003, and later under the title “D Song” when performed by the band under the moniker Irregardless, prior to the band’s official reformation in 2006. Daniel Brummel has cited the 1899 piano composition “Pavane pour une infante défunte” (“Pavane for a dead princess”) by Maurice Ravel as the basis for “Underneath My Tree.”

Lyrics

So long ago, I dreamt about a city
Built on rock and roll when it fell
So long ago, I knew that it would happen
But I couldn't get back to explain
So the future remained the same

Now like the leaves you're gone
It's a fresh cut lawn that I left you on
In the pouring rain, I breathe your name
And suddenly I feel happy again

So long ago, I saw you for a moment
But your figure got lost in the crowd
Now I'm looking all over town

Now like the leaves you're gone
It's a fresh cut lawn that I'm lying on
When I start to yawn, I breathe your name
And suddenly I feel happy again

I see myself in all of you and all yourselves in me
Shadows underneath my tree

There, hidden in the patterns that present themselves to me
Shadows underneath my tree
I see myself in all of you and all yourselves in me
Shadows underneath my tree
