Song Description

A young woman contemplates bringing life into the world in a very poetic way.


Garden On The Moon
Words & Music © Grant Maloy Smith

Well, I've never had a fortune
I've lived in quiet means
I'm not one full of purpose
I shy from the extremes

But when light gives way to darkness
and it's quiet in my room
I think about my garden on the moon

I'll plant my garden on the moon
I'll build my garden on the moon
I'll plant my garden
You only reap what you have sewn
the lifeless earth will turn for me
I know

It's easy to be doubtful
It's easy to find fault
But what we need is mortar,
bricks and hands to build a wall

A wall to hold the rain in
but not to block the view
A wall around my garden on the moon


So we started on the garden
with all our willing hands
We made a well for water
we worked and tilled the land

But when darkness turned to daylight
And we saw our first child bloom
We knew we'd built our garden on the moon
