"Is anybody out there?"
He wanders to the Echo Woods
Where the trees call out to him
Doing what the others would
Not, for he is abandoned.
"Can anybody hear me?"
Such a lonely life he lives through
With no friends or family
An outcast he's labeled, too
So he calls out to the trees.
"I've never come here before."
He walks through the underbrush
Not afraid at all
Slowly roaming and in no rush
He cups his mouth for another call.
"Will you be my friends?"
A smile grows widely on his face
As he climbs into a tree
He stays right there in that place
Never wanting to be free.
"You'll always be here, right?"
His lonely soul is still seen here
Talking to the trees
And they speak back without fear
For Echo Woods lasts eternities.
