The Forest
José González Lyrics


Why didn't you tell
Why didn't I know
Landscapes blurred by rain
Mountains covered in snow

Why didn't I see
The forest on fire behind in snow

Why didn't I feel
Why didn't you show
The cracks under the bridge
The gaps along the road

Why didn't I see
The forest on fire behind the trees

Why didn't I see
The forest on fire behind the trees
