Story

Yes, I wrote this about a bunch of bushes that were being uprooted and thrown out when someone tore down a house to build a new one. It is of course metaphorical too.

Lyrics

You’ve been rooted here

For thirty years or more

Standing all alone

Outside my door

 

You blossomed every spring

Withstood the winter’s air

Helped birds to find their wing

Somehow it isn’t fair

 

Chorus:

But the house is falling down

Flying timbers all around

I tried to have you moved nearby

But the gardener says you’ll have to die

The gardener says you’ll have to die

 

They’ll cut you to your knees

Uproot you like a tooth

Then when it’s all done

They’ll find me someone new

 

Chorus:

But the house is falling down

Flying timbers all around

I tried to have you moved nearby

But the gardener says you’ll have to die

The gardener says you’ll have to die

 

I’ll think of you each day

Though I didn’t know you’re name

You’re just like one of us

Nobody is the same

 

Chorus:

But the house is falling down

Flying timbers all around

I tried to have you moved nearby

But the gardener says you’ll have to die

The gardener says you’ll have to die

The gardener says you’ll have to die
