lyrics

i could go home and lay my head by the lavender
like you did the night before our dog died
and you said you couldn’t help it
it was the last thing you could do and it gave you peace and quiet

it was a surprise, ‘cause you’re a light sleeper
but that night you slept the whole damn through
there’s no use in wondering
maybe it’s been the right thing to do

you’ll always keep looking for a reason
you won’t stop ‘til you find a cure
and if you can’t find it in the garden
you will turn to the soil

you could lay low for a while where the sea meets those pines
along the rugged coastline
but you said you wouldn’t dare making plans anymore
you want to take each day as it comes

it’s a surprise ‘cause you’ve always been the type
that likes to have everything figured out
there’s no use in wondering why
it’s whatever get’s you through the night


you’ll always keep looking for a reason
you won’t stop ‘til you find a cure
and if you can’t find it in the garden
you will turn to the soil
