CAN'T SEE THE FOREST FOR THE TREES
(Deke Dickerson)
DEKE DICKERSON & THE ECCO-FONICS (HIGHTONE, 1998)

Well, I gave you some flowers and a card
I put a statue of you in my backyard
Well, woman what's it gonna take to get me on your mind
I'm sending those smoke signals, but you seem to be blind

[Chorus]
And I said, you can't see the forest for the trees
You can't see the honey for the bees
If it was a snake it would have bitten you
I'm a-givin' up on gittin' you
You can't see the forest for the trees

I wrote you a book up on a tree
I thought it might turn you on to me
I dressed up in a suit and asked about my sense of rhyme
You said you didn't read it, 'cause you didn't have the time

[Chorus]

Well, I thought that I would give it one more try
I wrote your name up in letters in the sky
Well, I asked you what you thought, but to my agitation
You told me that you thought it was a natural formation

[Chorus]
