I am a wild garden Untamed and oh so free Been sitting here With the moon and the cats Growing majestically
My vines are all knotted and twisted My grass grows straight and tall And in the hush of the night If you slow yourself down You can hear pitter-pat on the prowl.
The path it lies abandoned Look around and you’ll see the old gate There’s a deep old well Covered by an old wooden board Now don't hesitate
Just, come in and Join me for a while
Water me Water me From that deep old well It hasn't been used for years
Spoken: The oak said it was dragon tears but the rooster he disagreed.
Water me, Water me Douse me and Drench me Oh love,
Pour yourself out on me, Soaking me As I draw you deep down to my roots… Deep deep down to my mighty roots
I have so many secrets The seasons have aged me Black-eyed Susans and Crushed pine cones Rocks mossy and green
The vines run up the old stone walls Wrapping themselves snugly around me Coiled, tight they latch on to my skin Giving me a strange sense of security
Now won't you come in and join me for awhile Keep me some company
And just Water me Water me From that deep old well It hasn't been used for years
Water me, Water me Drench me and dowse me Untwist and untangle me Oh love, just pour yourself out on me Soaking me,
As I pull you right down to my roots
Right straight down to my mighty roots Deep deep down to my mighty roots
The oak said it was dragon tears But the rooster he disagreed He decreed that when the old grape vein Starts to bear fruit again That the waters will turn a bright berry red And that we will sip the holy wine And that you will sleep nights in the garden
