or
Bryan White

On a tree inside a heart
A dull boyscout knife
Took half a day to carve
Michael loves Caroline
He just turned ten and she was nine

The summer she turned sweet sixteen
He finally found his nerve
And took her out to see
And what she saw through her tears
Were seven hearts for seven years

CHORUS:
And they stood beneath the tree of hearts
And they watch their feelings grow
And they swore they'd never be apart
True love left it's mark
On the tree of hearts

The tenth time he carved their names
Caroline's dad was giving her away
There beneath the shelter of
The tree of hearts they pledged their love

And then four hearts down the road
They brought the first of two born home

CHORUS:
And they played beneath the tree of hearts
And they watched their children grow
And they swore they'd never be apart
True love left it's mark
On the tree of hearts

BRIDGE:
In the blinking of an eye
Somehow fifty-seven hears flew by

Fifty-eight, fifty-nine
Sixty he missed Caroline
At sixty-one Michael knew
There wouldn't be a sixty-two

CHORUS:
Now they lay beneath the tree of hearts
An you can watch their love still grow
Where they swore they'd never be apart
True love left it's mark
On the tree of hearts.
