Musically, this song is really lovely. I love the sound of the guitar, the riff is memorable, and the harmonies sound great.
So why am I only giving this 7 stars? Two words: the lyrics. I fail to see exactly what the apple tree is supposed to be a metaphor for. The singer's overbearing parents? The part about God would make very little sense then. A codependent relationship? Then the part about waiting for the tree to pass away would make little sense (unless he's dating an 80-year-old woman).
Bottom line: I haven't a clue what you were trying to say with the lyrics here, and that's bad. You really should think your words through more carefully next time.
