lyrics

We Were Lovers In The Garden

You would never guess
The one you thought to be the best
Is such a mess from neck to toe

In a tattered dress
A tired eyed bloodshot distress
Oh bitterness from hand to heart

With no other are we satisfied
Yet in other beds we’ve lied
We were lovers in the garden
Now we run

With a kiss loveless
The one you thought to be blessed
Is a mistress to the world

Ice cold caress
Thirsty mouthed, faint eared, sightless
With restlessness, now she starves

In agony
His heart must be
As she thinks she is free

With no other are we satisfied
Yet in other beds we’ve lied
We were lovers in the garden
Now we run

We were lovers in the garden
We were lovers in the garden
Are we longing for the garden?
Are we longing for the garden?

about

The Soldier Story New Haven, Connecticut

The Soldier Story formed in late 1999 as a six piece band. Musical differences caused more than half the band to leave early on, making The Soldier Story a moniker for multi-instrumentalist & producer Colin Meyer. Releases include: Wait (2009), and Rooms Of The Indoors (2013).
Colin Meyer is currently self producing what will be The Soldier Story’s third LP to be released in the fall of 2016.
