Cinderblock Garden

Album: Future Hearts (2015)
  • The girl with the cinder block garden

    Wait
    I think we're onto something
    We can't run from fate
    But we can let it take us down
    Down this road
    Where all our colors run together
    Let's take the worst and make it better
    Let's take this mess and make a home

    I know it gets hard for you to stay
    But do you really want to throw it all away?

    (I'm thinkin')

    That we could make forever after all
    Finding the gold in our darkest moments
    Watching the roads turning into white roses, roses
    And we don't ever have to leave these walls
    I'll be the boy with the silver lining
    You'll be the girl with the Cinder Block Garden

    Tonight
    Take all the ghosts and all those skeletons
    You hide
    And bury them deep beneath the ground
    Let them rest
    'Cause you weren't meant to bear that burden
    Look at the roses in your garden
    You can breathe now and forget

    Forget it gets hard for you to stay
    But we don't really have to throw it all away

    I'm thinkin'

    That we could make forever after all
    Finding the gold in our darkest moments
    Watching the roads turning into white roses, roses
    And we don't ever have to leave these walls
    I'll be the boy with the silver lining
    You'll be the girl with the Cinder Block Garden

    Just hold out for tomorrow
    Our dreams will follow
    Follow us back to when
    When nothing was broken
    The future was open
    Let's go back again
    (Let's go again)

    That we could make forever after all
    Finding the gold in our darkest moments
    Watching the roads turning into white roses, roses
    And we don't ever have to leave these walls
    I'll be the boy with the silver lining
    You'll be the girl with the Cinder Block Garden Writer/s: ALEXANDER WILLIAM GASKARTH, DAVID HODGES, CAMERON WALKER
