    Question Tone of Lemon Tree

    What is the tone of Lemon Tree?


    There are five verbs "Wonder, Turn, Drive, happen and sit " that has been used twice in the song "Lemon Tree" by Fool's Garden. How does it influence the tone of the song?

    Could you help answer these questions?

    Thanks for your help!

    1) I've never heard of the song.
    2) Those five words are so random and unconnected that I can't see any way that they could collectively affect the tone of anything.
    3) Song lyrics are a law unto themselves. They are chosen to fit the rhythm and beat of a song. They are rarely grammatical and frequently make no sense.
