about

Garden is the third Single written by Australian artist Rachel Caddy. With the production guidance of Chris Pickering and Benjamin McCarthy (Alex the Astronaut, Gordi), the track is an easy going singer/songwriter track. The lyrics equate a relationship to a garden and explore the challenges that can stunt its growth.

lyrics

We found ourselves in the garden
two seeds on the breeze
planted side by side in the fertile soil where life begins
We're growing high but it's fragile
the branches bend and squeak
Guess we forgot to be careful
let our seeds turn into trees

I'm growing through your shadow
As the skyline splits in half
So my darling don’t get mad at me
I’m scared here in the dark
Am I lifting you up higher
Or just pushing us apart
I’m on your side
Turn on the light
Inside your shadow

You found yourself in the darkness
of a sleepless night
You know that I can’t wake you
you shut the curtains so tight
Our conversations are futile
you push it all away
I shrink in every sentence
take back all I meant to say

I'm growing through your shadow
as the skyline splits in half
So my darling don’t get mad at me
I’m scared here in the dark
Am I lifting you up higher
or just pushing us apart
I’m on your side
turn on the light
inside your shadow
