lyrics

There's an overgrown garden that's claimed the yard
A tangled mess of thorns that never let in a love song
Dishes stacked in the sink, three months of clothes piled on the bed
I can't get out of my head for a minute
Lead me back to heaven -

I used to get on unattended
In a trailer marooned on a roadless stretch of the north coast
I never needed that much, just a roof in the right place
When we save up enough and move back
The struggle won't seem so bad
They can never take that from us

Do you think that you could love me the way that I need?
Would you settle on me if I'm still living wrongly?
I'm still living wrongly
In denial and withdrawal
I am a broken road, run down by every lover, drifter and ghost

That's ever come along

I'm still living wrongly
At least I know
I know where I belong
I know where I belong

There's an overgrown garden planted in the heart
And a home painted ochre and blonde
That I'll get around to fixing up, time permitting
And when your hair turns to gray, I'll still love you
The same as that first day
We sat upon the front step, arm-in-arm
Lead me back to heaven - I wanna stay lost
I swear they'll never take this from us
