Lyrics

Julia

Julia Butterfly climbed a tree
something every child does, but now her climb is history
the logging company demanded that she move
they claimed she was on their property
how can anybody own
a thousand year old life?
in the canopy of an ancient redwood tree
for two years she played her part
she didn't set out to change the world
she was just caring for her heart

Julie, Julia
It's not just you and me
Julia, Julia
our whole world is in that tree

Julia Butterfly headed west without a plan
after a car crash almost took her life
at her first sight of ancient redwood trees
she stopped wandering to climb
in this holiest of temples
she fell to her knees and cried
she was no activist, not anti-corporate
just not willing to betray her heart

Julie, Julia
It's not just you and me
Julia, Julia
our whole world is in that tree
