Lyrics

Here’s to your garden
Here’s to your kids
I heard you were in the neighbourhood
I’ve been a long time on the skids
And baby I’m beside you
You run from the river when it long ran over you

This is for you standing up to a bone chilling wind
This is for the failures you collected from my sins
And this is for your lonesome tears I never dried
This is for your hanging in in the hope that it never dies

And baby I’m beside you
You run from the river when it long ran over you – yeah

This is for you waiting up though the call never came
For the milk of human kindnesses you collected from our dream
And this is for your lonesome tears I never dried
This is for your hanging in in the hope that it never dies

And baby I’m beside you
You run from the river when it long ran over you
And now I’m running here beside you
And now I’m running here beside you

This is for the traveller on a blinding desert road
Good fortune smile upon you and may love be your only load
And this is for the only one who could quell my burning rage
To anyone who’s been a broken man and anyone seen better days

Baby I’m beside you
And now I’m running here beside you (baby I’m)
And now I’m running here beside you (beside you)
And now I’m running here beside you (baby I’m)
And now I’m running here beside you (beside you)
