Mind Gardens [Alternate Version] Submit Correct Lyrics

Once upon a time
There was a garden on a high hill
Standin' green and blossomin' against the sea

And there the sun came and the rain pourin' down
The garden grew and splattered bits of color on the ground
And took shape and symmetry all around

There came winds, driven and howling
There came snow
And I feared for the garden, so I built a wall
And another, roofed it over

Thick and strong
I kept it from the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune
But when the sun came and the gentle rain of spring
They could not find the garden behind those walls

It would have died safely, securely died
But as I watched and as I learned
I tore the walls down, the garden still lives

Songwriters
DAVID CROSBY
