thorn tree in the garden lyrics – derek & the dominos

there’s a th*rn tree in the garden, if you know just what i mean
and i hate to hurt your feelings but it’s not the way it seems
’cause i miss her

she’s the only girl i’ve cared for, the only one i’ve known
and no one ever shared more love than we’ve known
and i miss her

but it all seems so strange to see
’cause she’d never turn her back on me
and leave without a last goodbye
and if she winds up walking the streets
loving every other man she meets
who’ll be the one to answer why
lord, i hope it’s not me, it’s not me

and if i never see her face again, i never hold her hand
and if she’s in somebody’s arms, i know i’ll understand
but i miss that girl
i still miss that girl

maybe someday soon, somewhere
