About the song Edit

Apple Tree finds AURORA being hopeful that we can all save the world together. The track’s sound stands out in her discography as one of her most different tracks, with her vocal delivery during the verses displaying a flow comparable to rap music.

During a Step 2 listening party and Q&A held on June 13, 2019, AURORA gave insights on the production of the song. She confirmed that the beat of the track was influenced by Brazilian’s Olodum, which she came in contact when she first went to Salvador in 2017. There’s also hip-hop influences because she “felt it deserved a very alive and bad-ass groove”.[1]

On the music video's description Aurora said: “Apple Tree is about the potential that hides in all of us. We can all save the world if we put our minds to it. The world won’t listen to scientific proof that the world is dying, so maybe it will listen to the dreamers, the children. In a bleeding world the power of the individual is our only hope. Let her save the world. Let him save them all. Believe in us, and maybe we’ll be the generation that saves the world, rather than the one that killed it”.

Lyrics Edit

All of my life I've been hunting
I've been a girl, I've been a boy
Digging my feet into the ground like an apple tree
Wanted to live with a purpose
Skin is a word, love is not a sin
People are bad, people are good
Just like the moon is a stone
But it's a star when it's dark and now she's hiding

If you've seen where the heart is, you've seen it's color
If I ever knew how we could guide it
I will take care of its children, become their mother
If I ever knew how we could hide it, hide it (Ah-ah)

Let her save the world, she is just a girl
Let him save the world, he is just a boy
Let her save the world, she is just a girl
Let him save the world, he is just a boy

Hunger is quiet if you do it right
Hunter is loud and predictable, scaring away every prey
So they're gone before the hunter arrives
Would you be kind and put away your sword?
You cannot cut away what we've got
You cannot kill what we are
We are not here in physical form

You've seen where the knife is, its dark location
If I ever knew how we could guide it
I will cut into our anger, make pure emotion
If I ever knew how we could hide it, hide it (Ah-ah)

Let her save the world, she is just a girl
Let him save the world, he is just a boy
Let her save the world, she is just a girl
Let him save the world, he is just a boy

Can we carry the weight of mortality?
The explosions around you is your symphony

Let her save the world, she is just a girl
Let him save the world, he is just a boy
Let her save the world, she is just a girl
Let him save the world, he is just a boy
