This week I chose my favorite Elton John song Empty Garden.


What happened here
As the New York sunset disappeared
I found an empty garden
Among the flagstones there


Lived here he must have been a gardener that cared a lot
Who weeded out the tares and grew a good crop
And now it all looks strange
It's funny how one insect can damage so much grain

And what's it for
This little empty garden by the brownstone door
And in the cracks along the sidewalk nothing grows no more
Lived here he must have been a gardener that cared a lot
Who weeded out the tares and grew a good crop
And we are so amazed
We're crippled and we're dazed
A gardener like that one no one can replace

And I've been knocking and no one answers
And I've been knocking most of the dayyy
Oh and I've been calling oh hey hey Johnny
Can't you come out to play

And through their tears
Some say he farmed his best in younger years
But he'd have said that roots grow stronger
If only he could hear


Lived there he must have been a gardener that cared a lot
Who weeded out the tares and grew a good crop
And now we pray for rain
And with every drop that faaalls
We hear we hear your name

And I've been knocking but no one answers
And I've been knocking most of the daaay
Oh and I've been calling oh hey hey Johnny
Can't you come ouuut to play

And I've been knocking but no one answers
And I've been knocking most of the daaaay
Oh and I've been calling oh hey hey Johnny
Can't you come out can you come out to play
Johnny
Can't you come out to play in your empty garden
Johnny
Can't you come out to play in your empty garden
Johnny
Can't you come out to play in your empty garden
Johnny
