A Thousand Trees - Stereophonics

Standing at the bus stop with my shopping in my hands
When I'm overhearing elderly ladies as the rumours start to fly
Hear them in the school yard in the scrap yard in the chip shop
In the phone box in the pool hall
At the shoe stall
Every corner turned around

It started with a school girl who was running
Running home to her mam and dad
Told them she was playing in the change room of her local football side
They said tell us again she told them again

They said tell us the truth
I find it hard to believe cause he taught our Steve
He even trained me taught Uncle john
Who's a father of three
It only takes one tree to make a thousand matches
Only takes one match
To burn a thousand trees
Thousand trees

You see it in the class room
In the swimming pool where the match stick men are made
At the scouts hall
At the football where the wise we trust are paid
They all honour his name

He did a lot for the game

He got his name knocked up above the sports ground gates
Now they're ripping them down stamping the ground
Picture gathers dust in the bar
And it only takes one tree

To make a thousand matches
It only takes one match
To burn a thousand trees
Thousand trees

Wake up and smell the rain

Shake up he's back to stay
He hasn't been on a holiday
Growing seeds don't believe
Why he's been away
In the school yard
Change room
Playing fields

Bathroom

Phone box
Office blocks
Corners turned around
They keep doubting the flame
Tossing the blame

Got his name knocked up above the sports ground gates
Now they're ripping them down
Stamping the ground
Pictures gathers dust
In the bar in the lounge
And it only takes one tree
To make a thousand matches
It only takes one match
To burn a thousand trees
Thousand trees
Thousand trees...
Thousand... trees
