Sculpture Garden Lyrics

Twilight in the sculpture garden
We'll walk around the place
Look upon the beautiful secrets
That all the artists made

How fast the light has faded
Do we still want to stay
Turn down the noise and the city
The dark downtown parade

At night they turn the water on around the artworks
In the garden
In the garden

Midnight in the sculpture garden
Underneath the cherry moon
We can make our own beautiful secret
We can join the fabled few

Starlight in the sculpture garden
Red stainless steel balloon
Rose petal vermillion breezes
I believe the artist knew

At night they turn the water on around the artworks
In the garden
In the garden

Starlight in the sculpture garden
Red stainless steel balloon
Rose petal vermillion breezes

Great song - the Sculpture Garden is a Minneapolis landmark, a large (about 10-acre?) park outside the Walker Art Center, free to the public for wandering around the sculptures. An early interview with Semisonic quoted Dan Wilson as saying he wanted to record "make-out music for the new millenium," and this appears to be about walking around the Sculpture Garden with your beloved and staying late into the night for just such a purpose...

I think they're talking about a little more than making out. There's no "fabled few" of making out in the garden; people do that all the time, in broad daylight,

Also, I wanted to point out that "underneath the cherry moon" is a reference to a (terrible) Prince movie, Under the Cherry Moon.
