Versuri (lyrics)  Garden 

I’m not telling you to love what I love  
I’m asking you to take tἰme to know what it is that you love and I’m in love with
And do what you can not to offend your sensitive soul
You’ve seen things my lips can’t confess
No pain can bear witness to
My mind can justify
My memory can wipe

Let me love, let me touch, let me love 
Baby, give it up, let me drink from the fountain 
In the car, on the street, in the dark 
Baby, on the beach, in the back of the garden 

Oooh ooh ooh, I’m ready 
Oooh ooh, don’t stop
Oooh ooh ooh, I’m ready
Oooh ooh, don’t stop

You’re in the club, how you dance, how you touch
How you offer up all your love and devotion
Roll it up, spark ἰt up, let it burn
On the balcony, and we can fly to the ocean

Oooh ooh ooh, I’m ready
Oooh ooh, don’t stop
Oooh ooh ooh, I’m ready
Oooh ooh, don’t stop

You make it real, make me feel, make me feel
I’m as strong as steel and as tall as the mountains
Talk is cheap, can you rescue me
No place I’d rather be than the back of the garden

Oooh ooh ooh, I’m ready
Oooh ooh, don’t stop
Oooh ooh ooh, I’m ready
Oooh ooh, don’t stop

Once upon a time ago
I threw my cautions to the wind, my friend
And yelled.. Geronimo
And rode the wings of love to outer space
But then I fell a thousand miles to Guantanamo
Euphoria to torture
I left a note that had a rhyme, it go..
Love is like a ferris wheel
Love is like a roller coaster
Love is at a standstill
Body after body after body
It’s a landfill
And I just caught a body
In the lobby and got my hands filled
I’m a serial lover
I set up all the dates
That rang up fate and got my friends killed
I barely knew my dad, sometimes I feel like my mother
I love that Purple Rain love
That have a fight, that scratch my face
That f*ck outside and ride my motorcycle in the rain love
Love is like a garden, love is like a death sentence
Love is like a pardon, I’m free again and ready
Once outside these prison walls, to believe again is scary
Your garden is my sanctuary

Back of the garden
Oooh ooh ooh, I’m ready
Oooh ooh, don’t stop
Oooh ooh ooh, I’m ready
Oooh ooh, don’t stop
Yeah oooh ooh ooh, I’m ready
Oooh ooh, don’t stop
Oooh ooh ooh, I’m ready
Oooh ooh, don’t stop

Be my confidant, my shoulder, my diary, my best friend, my mentor, my lover, my teacher, my preacher, my one and ending, my everything
From the beam of the sun to the dim of the moon
From before untἰl always I’m yours
So keep me safe within yourself
Bow to my throne, no matter what, and I will stand tall…
