Your Overgrown Garden

Did I kill all the anteaters
   The anteaters from your garden
That pricked you, bothered you
   Through summer, for days on end?

Did I close that tap that ran
   Non-stop, flooding your sink
And your gorgeous little kitchen?
   Oh I had forgotten to think!

I got fumbling and looking
   You said stop and then go on
You see I wasn't thinking
   I was lost myself, I could've sworn.

Your overgrown garden
Shrieking yard
Unknown tales - Unkempt imaginations

Did I make you smile at all
Did my candle light
Light up the corner
Cleaning the musty cobwebbed stall?

Candle light in your
Overgrown garden, oh.
