You hear it everyday
Once upon a time, they say
Once upon a time in this place
I looked and saw on your face
A smile that spoke to me
In, oh, so many ways

The Sunday morning bells
Rang out that all was well
Sun shone across the yard
We'd rest when we've worked hard
We'd take a little time off
To appreciate the day

And love built a garden
Grew it from the ground up
Each one of us knowing
Every inch of it was ours

We pulled it all together
Hoping and believing
That love built this garden
For the two of us to dream in

We gain a little rain
Then sun came out again
But a frost, it's hard to fight
One sick takes whole, flowers died
There's only so much you can do
To keep some things alive

And love built a garden
Grew it from the ground up
Each one of us knowing
Every inch of it was ours

We pulled it all together
Hoping and believing
That love built this garden
For the two of us to dream in

Sad to say it's true
Without another who
Cares as much, well, I guess
I guess it goes to prove

And love built a garden
Rose it from the ground up
Each one of you knowing
Every inch of it is trust

We pulled it all together
Hoping and believing
That love builds a garden
For the two of us to dream in
