How can you write about the sunshine

when all I see is the rain

And how can you write about the moonshine

when all I see is the pain.

How can you write about the flowers

when all I see is the dirt

And how can you write throughout the hours

when every minute you hurt.

This house is just as empty as your heart

what keeps you going I want I know

While the world around us is falling apart

I wonder how your garden grows.

You tell me that it needs a little sunshine

but it doesn't need all this rain

Tonight you doubt they'll be moonshine

it takes blood, sweat, tears and pain.

How can you have such beautiful flowers

you say to make sure that I have the right dirt

How can you toil over it throughout the hours

you say that it helps to heal the loss and the hurt.

This house is just as empty as your heart

what keeps you going I want I know

While the world around us is falling apart

I wonder how your garden grows.
