Lyrics

My garden of hope
Overrun by a blight of despair
My dreams have wilted
No one is here to water my heart

Regrets cannot be vanquished
No, they can’t be washed away
Wring your hands, shed a tear
Fumes of remorse linger in the air

But when the night crushes the day
And the vagabonds come out to play
An angel touches my shoulder
A song blooms in my heart

It’s hard to peel off layers
Of your own onion, but
If you dig down deep enough
You’ll find a geyser gushing spirits of hope

I long for those times
When all that I needed
To get me through the day was a
Sunny songbird singing outside my window

But when the night crushes the day
And the vagabonds come out to play
An angel touches my shoulder
A song blooms in my heart

Daffodils sipping sunlight
Children flying a kite
Trying to silence my fright
Who’s afraid of the cold, dark night

My garden of hope
Taught me to cope
With my lost soul
Watered my heart back to life

Watered my heart back to life
Back to life
