lyrics

You invaded my garden,
pulled weeds, planted flowers.
You filled it with summer-suns, angelicas and orchids
and white cotton roses.
Here nothing will harm them.
Now orphaned, appalling,
they lie dormant through the winter

May dreams embrace all of you.
I´ll hide in the undergrowth
or set myself firmly upon a maple leaf
and fly away to my land of make believe.

You invaded my garden.
I welcomed you dearly.
You filled it with summer-suns, angelicas and orchids
and white cotton roses.
Then left them to wither.
Now orphaned, appalling,
they lie dormant through the winter

May dreams embrace all of you.
I´ll hide in the undergrowth
or set myself firmly upon a maple leaf
and fly away to my land of make believe.
