Into the Garden

Music by, Steve Anderson
Lyrics by, Steve Anderson and Bill Gulacy

Into the Garden
Found a place where I can be
Free from things that trouble me
Forget the future and the past
Be here now, peace at last

Have a timeless human need
To look inside reduce the speed
Time to look, don’t ignore
Take a moment to restore

Found myself in Fernhill
In a wandering wetland dream
Early sun and morning dew
Set blades of grass agleam

Inside the shadow of
A verdant Coast Range ridge
Lies a place with town and river
Where the water is the bridge

Ooh, into the garden
Taken away, I’m taken away
Ooh, these trails go nowhere
Except where I want
Where I want to stay
Ooh, into the garden

Lift the burden of the day
Let my thoughts go out and play
Feel the stress release its grip
Burdens I carry begin to slip

Dare to breathe, let it out
Wash away fear and doubt
Found a place where I can be
Free from things that trouble me

Water ambles slowly
Moving in a careless sprawl
Slipping past the boulders
Looking for a place to fall

Oh, to be floating
Like the herons overhead
I’m taking in a lesson, but
The words remain unsaid

Ooh, into the garden
Taken away, I’m taken away
Ooh, these trails go nowhere
Except where I want
Where I want to stay
Ooh, into the garden
