Old Pine
Ben Howard Lyrics


Oh, hot sand on toes, cold sand in sleeping bags
I've come to know that memories
Were the best things you ever had
The summer shone, beat down on bony backs
So far from home, where the ocean stood
Down dust and pine cone tracks

Oh, we slept like dogs down by the fire side
Awoke to the fog where all around us
The boom of summertime, yeah

We stood
Steady as the stars in the woods
So happy-hearted
And the warmth rang true inside these bones
As the old pine fell we sang
Just to bless the morning

Oh, hot sand on toes, cold sand in sleeping bags
I've come to know the friends around you
Are all you'll always have
Smoke in my lungs, or the echoed stone
Careless and young, free as the birds that fly
With weightless souls now

We stood
Steady as the stars in the woods
So happy-hearted
And the warmth rang true inside these bones
We stood
Steady as the stars in the woods
So happy-hearted
And the warmth rang true inside these bones
As the old pine fell we sang
Just to bless the morning

We grow, grow, steady as the morning, yeah
We grow, grow, older still
How we grow, grow, happy as a new dawn
We grow, grow, older still
How we grow, grow, steady as the flowers
We grow, grow, older still
How we grow, grow, happy as a new dawn
We grow, grow, older still

Ooh, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
Ooh, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah

I lost my dad 7 years ago. My mum held onto his ashes and asked that once she is gone that we take them both to their favorite place. It was a beautoful river where they would often go with us kids when we were little.
My mother passed away just a few days ago and we decided to grow a tree from our parents ashes. Once we can see the tree is growning strong we will plant it by the Riverside.
This is the perfect song for the occasion.
It brings memories of the great times we had.
It makes us appreciate our friends and loved ones.
And the will grow as steady as the flowers as we grow older still.
This is exactly what my parents wanted. My mums words ring so true now.
Don't cry because we left.
Smile and rejoice because we lived!

Hot sand on toes, cold sand in sleeping bags, 
I've come to know that memories
Were the best things you ever had
The summer shone beat down on bony backs
So far from home where the ocean stood 
Down dust and pine cone tracks

We slept like dogs down by the fire side
Awoke to the fog all around us 
The boom of summer time

[Chorus]
We stood
Steady as the stars in the woods
So happy-hearted
And the warmth rang true inside these bones
As the old pine fell we sang
Just to bless the morning.

Hot sand on toes, cold sand in sleeping bags, 
I've come to know the friends around you
Are all you'll always have
Smoke in my lungs, or the echoed stone 
Careless and young, free as the birds that fly
With weightless souls now.

[Chorus x2]
We stood
Steady as the stars in the woods
So happy-hearted
And the warmth rang true inside these bones
We stood
Steady as the stars in the woods
So happy-hearted
And the warmth rang true inside these bones
As the old pine fell we sang
Just to bless the morning.

We grow, grow, steady as the morning
We grow, grow, older still
We grow, grow, happy as a new dawn
We grow, grow, older still
We grow, grow, steady as the flowers
We grow, grow, older still
We grow, grow, happy as a new dawn
We grow, grow, older still

Hot sand on toes, cold sand in sleeping bags,

Careless and young, free as the birds that fly
With weightless souls now.

And the warmth rang true inside these bones
We stood
Steady as the stars in the woods
So happy-hearted
And the warmth rang true inside these bones
As the old pine fell we sang
Just to bless the morning.

We grow, grow, steady as the morning
We grow, grow, older still
We grow, grow, happy as a new dawn
We grow, grow, older still
We grow, grow, steady as the flowers
We grow, grow, older still
We grow, grow, happy as a new dawn
We grow, grow, older still

Ben Howard is not underrated, he is exactly who he needs to be. Attention in the media kills music and this is so pure it should always stay this way, a little bit hidden. His sound is perfect.

@Annie Masters I don’t think being a popular music artist automatically makes you an a list celeb does it

This song makes me think about life. About all the choices I've made, the good and the bad. It also makes me think about the future, what I'm going to choose and what I will become. This song gives me a mixed feeling of nostalgia, sadness and happiness.
