Shocked by hope and nothing more
I rubbed my feet against the floor
And called your name out in the air
The silence brought back nothing there

Creaking dawn and flashing lights
I had let you from my sight
Crashing storms and open rains
Hear about it in a day

I’ll plant a rose in my garden here
And watch it grow

Up the stairway in the spring
Wait for five until we leave
Hope for love then shrug it off
An absent call it left enough

Chopping blades and hands that take
Riding round in circled breaks
Lot it holds and lot it leaves
Harder on the back than knees

I’ll plant a rose in my garden here
And watch it grow
