Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Garden Of You

This song was created for Game of Bands round 205 : "Halloween"


I had a dream you left me that went on for hours
I almost laughed through the tears
When I'm awake we've been here for years
While your namesake leaves and flowers

I'll make a garden of you
Fruiting vines climbing you rib by rib
Past the knots in your spine in which pests live
And die, fertilizing new buds to take root

Why do you turn away, let memory fade
You're too light when you fall into me
Why do you sound wrong when you breathe
How do I to convince you to stay?

I'll make a garden of you
Wings fluttering out of your pitted eyes
From the dark nest formed in your absence of mind
And the moss on your jawline will drip with the dew

I'll make a garden of you
But I'll get distracted and in autumn you'll dry
And I will lose hope and in winter you'll die
Littered with snail shells empty as tombs
