Romulus and Venus
The Tear Garden Lyrics


Everything you gave me lies within a trunk, within a drawer
I burned one hundred photographs or more
I fled across the ocean wioth another face, another name
Nothing but my soul remained the same
But still you came with cases I was forced to let you stay
You bought the locks, the box in which I lay
I tried to get away from you
I tried to make a break
You always see right through me, there's no escape
I can still remember you with coronets, white horses
I would run behind you'd flash a sign I'd dive
Just to serve you
Night time's turned the lady to a girl again, you'd slip away
You tried to kiss my tears away, pretend there was no day to take me down
Nightshade, blades, Niagra falls - I tried them all six times
You would always run behind me
And you'd find me
Keep me on a leash, on a line
I'm uncomfortably resigned
There's no release till you untie me
Deny me

I can't stop listening to this song! Help!!!

@Keith Ferrera - same! I have listened to it all this week for hours at a time. Not even kidding. It gets better and nuances show through even after hearing it back in the 1990s.

Same. It touches my heart on a level I can't really explain with words... Sometimes I need to repeatedly listen to this song...

David Schadeberg

...WWOoww... (?)

Jovani Maqueda

Me pasa lo mismo! D:

Monica Witt

Never forget hearing this like it's a simple pop tune driving across Michigan in the early nineties coming on the radio and then getting out to California. This will always be my escape anthem, appropriate or not.

Dylan Groves

This song makes me happy in a way I can't explain.

David Pearce

I usually get over songs after a bit of time and hearing them 8 million times but I think this will always be the most beautiful song ive ever heard.
