The Briar and the Rose (Waits Tom)

I fell asleep down by a stream And there I had the srtangest dream And down by Brennan's Glenn there grows A briar and a rose There's a tree in the forest and i don't know where I built a nest out of your hair And climbing up into the air A briar and a rose Well i don't know how long it's been But i was born in Brennan's Glenn And near the end of spring there grows A briar and a rose I picked a rose one early morn I pricked my finger on a thorn They'd grown so close their winding wove The briar and the rose I tried to tear them both apart I felt a bullet in my heart And all dressed up in springs new clothes The briar and the rose And when i'm buried and in my grave Tell me then so i will know Your tears may fall to make love grow The briar and the rose
