The calluses on the trees around you

It’s frightening and intimate as well

The quiet and the fir trees they have found you

You’re shivering behind me I can tell

And you

Spent the night

In the forest

For the first time

The coffee in your hand is getting colder

This forest is the fountain of my youth

While I’m waiting for some trees to grow older

The waiting it has never been for you

It has never been for you and I

To sleep beneath the stars under this sky

So come and look for me another time

And gather all the branches you can find

And gather all the branches you can find.

Ben Hermanski is an observer, a sensitive writer. A finder of melodies both engaging, catchy and familiar; a teller of stories both true and remote at the same time.

He keeps his eyes closed on stage, because these moments are for giving. To you.
