Wild Garden – lyrics from the Naked Thoughts Album


Wild Garden is my newest release for the Naked Thoughts Album Series. This year, I release one song each month. Naked and pure, I am opening my journals to the world. You will have a glimpse of my journey as a woman, as a songstress, and how although I was getting bathed in the spotlights of the theaters and being so touched by my dear friends and audience, it was a time of my life where my skin was thirsty for good old touch. It seems like it is easier to nourish other senses and often we forget the simplicity of human touch. We eat well, we love taste, we go to a great concert, we live listening, we even put in a loaf of bread and enjoy the smell that sneaks out of the oven and into the house, we look at lovely landscapes and buy some fresh flowers at the market,  but when is the last time you massaged your feet, you pulled your fingers through your hair, you let yourself be massaged simply to feel the form and deep layers of your body???

When this song came to me, it was so persistent, I had to listen. 

I am taking more care now. Making sure that I nourish all of my senses. Finding ways to touch more, to hold more, to embrace more. To love more.

 

Enjoy Wild Garden. It will be available at itunes and amazon end of June, 2012.  Kara

WILD GARDEN

I am a wild garden

Untamed and oh so free

been sitting here

with the moon and the cats

growing majestically

My vines are all knotted and twisted

My grass grows straight and tall

And in the hush of the night

if you slow down your breath

you’ll hear pitter pat on the prowl.

The path it lies abandoned

Look around and you’ll see the old gate

There’s a deep well covered,

by an old wooden board

now don’t hesitate,

Please come in, and join me for a while

Refrain:

Water me

Water me

From that deep old well

It hasn’t been used for so many years

Gothic.Interlude:

the oak said deep down there are dragon’ s tears

but the rooster disagreed

Water me,

Water me

pour yourself out on me,

soaking me,

As I  draw you deep down to my roots…

Deep deep down to my mighty roots

Verse:

I have so many secrets

the seasons have aged me

black eyed susans

crushed pine cones

stones mossy and green

the vines run up my old stone walls

wrapping themselves, snugly around me

coiled, tight they latch on to my skin

giving me a strange sense of security

Won’t you come and join me for awhile

Please do come in –

Refrain:

Water me

Water me

From this deep old well

It hasn’t been used in so many years

Yes

Water me,

Water me

Oh love

Pour yourself out on me

Soaking me

As I draw you straight down to my mighty roots

Draw you right down to my mighty roots

Gothic recitations:

the oak said deep there are dragons tears

but the rooster disagreed

He decreed, when the old grape vines

start to bear fruit again

the water will turn a bright berry red

and we shall sip the holy wine

and you will sleep nights in the garden

outro:

Water me

Drench me

Soak me

Dowse me…

Oh pour yourself out on me

Simply tend to me….

As I draw you deep down to my roots

Deep deep down to my mighty roots
