lyrics

I never saw a reflection
a reflection more true
before the day I saw myself
I saw myself in you

a love separated
separated by miles of sea
call it long distance
we called it a new journey

I never heard your voice clearer
before I read the lipstick on the mirror
a dark smudge in fade-resistant pink
an eternity, but it felt like a blink
it felt like a blink

before we grow old, say to me
that we tried it all
that our time meant something more than nothing

there’s women I loved, women that loved me
they outside beautiful, but inside be ugly
people keep saying
“Gardener man go hard and let that shit go”
why would I do that when that is the most
precious feeling in my life that I’ve ever known?
I was eighteen, shit was serene
I was her fling, she was my queen
Ma it’s cool, see the truth, I’ve learned and I’ve grown
hope you can say the same thing before you go
'cause life is short like a barber’s trim
life can crush you like a pile of Tim’s
pool of sorrows and I’ma dive right in
cover my head with the clout
still don’t admit all the doubts
drowning in sorrows no doubt
they counting me out 'cause I’m down
before we grow old you will see
gettin’ back up from my knees
ensuring my future succeeds
the evils will never impede my dreams, my dreams
they something so close I can reach - Gardener

before we grow old, say to me
that we tried it all
that our time meant something more than nothing

and now I'm watching you watching me
from beyond places that I believe in
and as I hear your way with words
I lose where mine have been

it's like every page we took
was from a fairy tale picture book
and I'd forgotten how happy we looked
forgotten how happy we looked

before we grow old, say to me
that we tried it all
that our time meant something more than nothing
