"I Am the Garden" as written by and Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn....
I did it wrong while my boots were on
I planted all
I wanted roots and love songs
but the dirt was dry
and the seeds were strong
now they've grown wild
where they don't belong

I am the garden
I have the fruits you wanted
I am the garden
just danced in open hands

and do all the friends and neighbors have to say
where every leaf uncurls in the likeness of my face
and are you haunted by my leaving of that place
hey hey
and the now scarecrow of my ghost keeps me away

and now I hold nothing much
and I have grown my babies up
and how I moved I was a great machine
and it was true I gave life to every thing

I am the garden
I have all the fruits you wanted
I am the garden
just danced in open hands

well I wasn't welcome anymore in the same way
you shut me up on the wrong side of the garden gate
and I wondered how to scale the fence I made
hey hey
and I gave up that hope and surrendered to the change

I did it wrong though my boots were on
I planted all I wanted roots and love songs
but the dirt was dry and the seeds were strong
now they've gone wild where they don't belong

I am
I have all
I am
just danced in open hands
just danced in open hands
just danced in open hands
just danced in open hands
