From the mountain I could touch the moon.
Hear her low and mournful tune.
I sat fixated at her glow.
She showed me things I didn't know.
She said why would you leave me here all alone.
A cross word from a real good friend.
Takes my mind and makes it bend.
Until the shackles there are loosed,
It won't let me call a truce.
He said why would you leave me here all alone.
The silence of a household still.
Lets my thoughts in for the kill.
I hum a tune and try to hide.
I can't let them come inside.
They say why would you leave us here all alone.
Track Name: Rose Garden
Grandmother willed me her rose garden.
It was in the month of May.
Like a pitiful fool, I let it go.
But the briars and the brambles stayed.
If she could see her rose garden.
She'd sigh and say to me.
You fool, you fool can't you see.
You've stolen beauty like a thief.
I wept for days, I hoped and prayed.
To see a single rose.
In a dream, God came to me.
To me he spoke this prose.
Child, dear child, your hopes they are naught.
I'll place you in my rose garden
and leave you there to rot.
