Moody Blues' Leafless Tree in Asia...

What is the title to this Moody Blues song that says "There's a leafless tree in Aisa..."?

Thanks,

"You And Me"

There's a leafless tree in Asia
Under the sun there's a homeless man
There's a forest fire in the valley
Where the story all began...

Thanks! You should live to be a hundred; you should live to be a million!

This thread reminded me of something I was pondering a while ago. Is the man Buddha, and the tree the bodhi tree under which he sat meditating? That sort of makes sense, since there's a discourse on the "Fruits of the Homeless Life." Or am I just reading too much into it?

Neat, didn't know that. This verse is less cryptic...

We look around in wonder
At the work that has been done,
By the vision of our father,
Touched by his loving son.
