lyrics

You said you’d try a little later
When our life wasn’t so complicated
Or when the weather got better
You said you’ll wait until the snow comes
And then you’ll see what needs to be done
The snow came and went and you really meant to

Back when our love was fine
You were always taking your time
It’s one of the things that I liked
About you

You planted me like a garden in spring
But you neglected to water that thing
Don’t say I scorned you, I warned you
Well I was a box in the basement that you
Labeled “things to get around to”
And so I waited and faded

Baby, if I was your garden in spring
I would have given you everything
When summer came. Oh, what a shame!
And if you’d remembered me there on your shelf
You could have held me against yourself
But you played it cool, and I’m the fool
