the garden lyrics – pj harvey

and he was walking in the garden
and he was walking in the night
and he was singing a sad love song
and he was praying for his life

and the stars came out around him
he was thinking of his sins
and he’s looking at his song-bird
and he’s looking at his wings

there, inside the garden
came another with his lips
said “won’t you come and be my lover ?”
“let me give you a little kiss”

and he came knelt down before him
and fell upon his knees
“i will give you gold and mountains
if you stay a while with me”

and there was trouble
taking place
trouble
taking place

there, inside the garden
they kissed and the sun rose
and he walked a little further
and he found he was alone

and the wind it gathered round him
he was thinking of his sins
and he’s looking for his song-bird
he was looking for his wings

and there was trouble
taking place
trouble
taking place

there was trouble
taking place
trouble
taking place
