lyrics

See you sitting in your garden, safe behind your garden wall.
Never looking past your borders, never looking out at all.
Gather every single flower, nothing anyone can share,
Pressed between your Bible pages, while the ground around is bare.

Come and step outside your garden, step outside your garden, girl.
Let me take you past the gateway, let me open up your world.
 
Other voices tried to call you, to the world you haven’t known.
You ignored them ‘til they vanished, watched your garden grow alone.
You act like it’s always springtime, all your beauty always ‘round.
You can’t see November coming, come to mow your garden down.

Come and step outside your garden, step outside your garden, girl.
Let me take you past the gateway, let me open up your world.

And if you come with me and leave the garden far behind,
I think you will agree, we might have better things in mind.

Garden can become a prison, walls keep in as well as out.
And when all your flowers have faded, you’ll see what I’m talking about.
Share your flowers while you have them-- one more opportunity.
Live outside the pretty prison; climb the garden wall to me.

Come and step outside your garden, step outside your garden, girl.
Let me take you past the gateway, let me open up your world.

Come and step outside your garden, step outside your garden, girl.
Let me take you past the gateway, let me open up your world.
