Watering Plants

Tyema and I spent our holiday in our little apartment being creative with each other. As the whiskey and wine poured, the lyrics unraveled. We decided to share with you all our work in progress. Enjoy. (Full lyrics in link below)

More recorded music here

I bought a plant of irises

So I could feel desirous

I put one in my hair

Perfume in the air

Feelin’ fierce and frisky

My third eye buzzed on whiskey

Dancin with no care

I brought enough to share

He told me that my energy was on another wavelength

Vibrating intensity, magnetic pull, immense strength

He said he liked my irises, the earth within my vision

Falling fast with gravity, a beautiful collision

I took his hand, unbuttoned pants and led him to my garden.

Incense burnin’, music playin, taken to far Arden

And in his essence, luminescence, hit me like a beam

Like the moonlight shining through my window, it was all a dream

So I got myself together and now I am awake

Pulling weeds up out my garden, now it’s time to rake

For my thoughts were piling up in my mind

Now it’s fine

Time to let go of the line, when my soul is at stake

2x

Caught in a trance

watering plants

Food for thought

Gave me more than romance

Cause my mind is a garden And the flowers are in bloom

You tried to weed in but I didn’t have the room.

I bought a plant of daffodils when I was in the feels

Thought it’d lift my spirits up, better than all these cheap thrills

Like riding in the night with a stranger into dusk

Tired of beating myself up, tired of giving into lust

Holding myself strong even though you did me wrong

Take all of these feelings, throw ‘em in a song

And I tell myself my energy is on another wavelength

Vibrating intensity, magnetic pull, immense strength

Self awareness is the key, to the light inside me

I’ll never let it fade away, I’ll make that shit burn brightly

Who I am is enough, you’re not my plant to water

And I’ll never lose myself again, no I will not falter

Cause I got myself together and now I am awake

Pulling weeds up out my garden, now it’s time to rake

For my thoughts were piling up in my mind

Now it’s fine

Time to let go of the line when my soul is at stake

2x

Caught in a trance

watering plants

Food for thought

Gave me more than romance

Cause my mind is a garden And the flowers are in bloom

You tried to weed in but I didn’t have the room

I thought I’d buy you flowers perennials that could bloom.

But you told me that your plot of land didn’t have the room.

You wanted to consume but said the feelings were too soon.

So I waited by your door until the weeds were removed.

When I came back there was a forest far and wide,

I couldn’t part the trees now I’ll never know your mind.

I took a step back to see the world where I came,

An empty barren land, a waste in the plains.

I decided to reconstruct the soil of my soul

Give back to myself, water the roots on the knoll.

Now I cant let go of the feelings that you stole

And it feels like the earth is telling me to control,

The way I make myself grow, tossed my seeds with no emo-

Tion, to the wind I scatted sin, now left within again

To contemplate the end, start anew again. Third eye

On the mend. Now I’m whole again, nature’s truthful blend.

So I see the fruits of my myself, plentiful abundant wealth.

Came back, asked for help, “whats the secret?” To no avail.

Because I pulled the weeds out, removed invasive seeds that sprout

No longer seek the weak out, cause of all my drought.

And I tell myself my energy is on another wavelength

Vibrating intensity, magnetic pull, immense strength.

So now I’m careful with my garden, don’t show it off too often

Paradise, blissful blossom, pollinate spring til autumn.

2x

Caught in a trance

watering plants

Food for thought

Gave me more than romance

Cause my mind is a garden And the flowers are in bloom

You tried to weed in but I didn’t have the room
