lyrics

i wrote my name in the wall of the bathroom
only because i knew one day i would change
to give and take away the garden i had planted
always i demanded that my own vine grow tall

everything will fall everything that stands
everything will be brought back where it first began
when i was wild i’d invite all i had known
when i was real i could feel what i did before

you cut off all your hair when they buried your brother
there was no one other that you’d always known
and shaking tambourines won’t bring you any closer
and as you’re growing older all will go away
but until then i’ll stay until then i’m sure
until then we’ll not remain in this garden anymore

everything will fall everything that stands
everything will be brought back where it first began
when i was wild i’d invite all i had known
when i was real i would feel what i did before

everything will fall everything that stands
everything will be brought back where it first began
when i was wild i’d invite all i had known
when i was real i could feel what i did before
