Wild Blue Garden

Wild Blue Garden

WRITTEN BY: CAMERON BLAKE

I’m hanging on tight 
Hanging on tight 
I’m chainin’ my body to the heavenly lights 
Tying my key to your kite 
God, this land seems so cruel 

I’m needing you now 
I’m needing you now 
I’m feeling, I’m kneeling 
I’m leaving you now 
Well I’ll go out and find you in somebody else 
Then I’ll go find myself 

There’s this mama I knew 
This mama I knew from a country of gypsies 
That smells of voodoo 
I gave her ten dollars to tell me the truth 
Came back and said I loved you 

Well there’s a frightened steed in a broken down barn 
Tired out plow on an Idaho farm 
Six straw soldiers on the battleground 
Where I gave up and lay down my crown 

When the fireflies dim then the spider webs shine 
One of these days I’ll make you all mine 
By the briar bush path and the tractor headlights 
I kissed you goodbye 

But it’s only in my mind 
‘Cause I’m hanging plastic lights in a backyard in Manhattan 
Cornered on all sides 
Where my friends are getting high and mixing daisy cocktails 
That will blow your mind 

I’m waiting for the lights to glow now 
Waiting for the sun to go down 
Waiting for the band to load out 
I’m still waiting up for you 

For my soul grows best in your wild garden 
My soul grows best in your wild blue 
Your wild blue garden 

Well, I’m picking up steam 
I’m picking up steam 
My hand’s damp and empty from picking up steam 
I live with an actress named reality 
She’s the girl of my dreams 

She’s this woman I met 
This woman I met when I first got here 
But she ain’t come to visit me yet 
I don’t mean to be coy 
I just need to forget the real woman I left 

There’s a plywood shed on the one wooded acre 
Where the icicles bled to the ground like daggers 
Leaving their mark as they’re falling apart 
That’s the way it has been 

But it’s a hard place to find 
Where I’m hanging plastic lights in a backyard in Manhattan 
Cornered on all sides 
Where my friends are getting high and mixing daisy cocktails 
Just to bend their minds 

I’m waiting for the lights to glow now 
Waiting for the sun to go down 
Waiting for the band to roll out 
I’m still waiting up for you 

For my soul grows best in your wild garden 
My soul grows best in your wild blue 
Your wild blue garden
