Garden

lyrics

let me rise you up like a garden
let me burrow into your kindness
until I'm ready to see myself again

=

I am no bargain
I ache stem to stern
tending my old wounds
I walk over the world
and until I find my place
I just keep walking

we are born trying
hungry & blue
planted inside us
as if kicking was all that we knew
and until we find our rest
we just keep fighting

battening down
when that hunger storms our towns
in this bright blinking bullet
that's speeding us fiercely home

you are an animal
that broke through the net
searching for sunlight
to sow your sweet bed
that pallet calls to me

I’ll grow into something
kind as the stars
lay down my burdens
& satellite scars
and rooted against your chest
I will come home, I will:

barrel through dark
as the clouds burst into drops
against the side of this bullet
that's speeding me fiercely home
towards you
towards the sun
