The briar and the rose

by Tom Waits


I fell asleep down by the stream
And there I had the strangest dream
And down by Brennan´s Glenn there grows
A briar and a rose

There´s a tree in the forest
But I don´t know where
I built a nest out of your hair
And climbing up into the air
A briar and a rose

I don´t know how long it has been
But I was born in Brennan´s Glenn
And near the end of spring there grows
A briar and a rose

P icked the rose one early morn
I pricked my finger on a thorn
It had grown so high
It´s winding wove the briar around the rose

I tried to tear them both apart
I felt a bullet in my heart
And all dressed up in springs and clothes
The briar and the rose

And when I´m buried in my grave
Tell me so I will know
Your tears will fall
To make love grow
The briar and the rose
