    "The Garden" Lyrics

    Will Cookson

    Falling asleep under an apple tree
    My thoughts fly away over the southern seas
    As the shadow of the church tower dims
    To the murmur of the evening hymns

    In another land the princess in her castle dreams
    Of all the other things that once upon a time she could have been
    She sends a prayer to the distant stars
    Puts her forehead on the window bars

    And a sliver of the moon lies sleeping on the dew
    As winter waits for the summer nights to darken

    And the ancient fountain fills from silver-threaded rills
    As the owl cries echo in the garden

    Shadows on the lawn dancing as the night wind blows
    Now the revellers have gone leaving us to waltz alone
    Through the hallways of elusive dream
    Until the morning takes you from me

    But now the sun is in the air and there's humming everywhere
    In the meadow grass that soon the frost will harden
    And though the world's left you behind I've kept you in my mind
    As I lie here with the statues in your garden

    And the dawn is only a few hours away
    And when I'm gone the memory will fade away
    When I'm gone far away
    When I'm gone
    This song was submitted on November 25th, 2016.
