Phoebe Bridgers – Garden Song Lyrics

Garden Song By Phoebe Bridgers

Someday, I’m gonna live
In your house up on the hill
And when your skinhead neighbor goes missing
I’ll plant a garden in the yard
Then I’ll glue in roses on a flatbed
You should see it, I mean thousands
I grew up here ’til it all went up in flames
Except the notches in the door frame

I don’t know when you got taller
See your reflection in the water
Off the bridge at the Huntington
I hopped the fence when I was 17
When I knew what I wanted

And when I grow up, I’m gonna look up
From my phone and see my life
And it’s gonna be just like my recurring dream
I’m at the movies, don’t remember what I’m seeing
The screen turns into a tidal wave
Then it’s a dorm room like a hedge maze
And when I find you, you touch my leg
And I insist, but I wake up before we do it

I don’t know how, but I’m taller
See our reflection in the water
Everything’s grown in my garden
You don’t have to know that it’s haunted

The doctor put her hands over my liver
And she told me my resentment’s getting smaller
I was only doing God’s work
And I did everything I want

I have everything I wanted
