Garden Song

  • Someday, I'm gonna live
    In your house up on the hill
    And when your skinhead neighbor goes missing
    I'll plant a garden in the yard, then
    They're gluing in roses on a flatbed
    You should see it
    I mean thousands
    I grew up here till it all went up in flames
    Except the notches and the door frames

    I don't know when you got taller
    See your reflection in the water
    Off the bridge at the Huntington
    I hopped the fence when I was seventeen
    Then I knew
    What I wanted

    And when I grow up
    I'm gonna look up from my phone and see my life
    And it's gonna be just like
    My recurring dream
    I'm at the movies
    I don't remember what I'm seeing
    The screen turns in to a tidal wave
    Then it's a dorm room
    Like a hedge maze
    And when I find you, you touch my leg
    And I insist
    But I wake up before we do it

    I don't know how but I'm taller
    It must be something in the water
    Everything's growing in our garden
    You don't have to know that it's haunted

    The doctor put her hands over my liver
    And she told me my resentments getting smaller
    No I'm not afraid of hard work
    And I did everything I want
    I have everything I wanted Writer/s: Christian Lee Hutson, Marshall Vore, Phoebe Bridgers
