Phoebe Bridgers - Garden Song

[Verse 1]
Someday, I'm gonna live
In your house up on the hill
And when your skinhead neighbor goes missing
I'll plant a garden in the yard, then
They're gluing roses on a flatbed
You should see it, I mean thousands
I grew up here, 'til it all went up in flames
Except the notches in the door frame

I don't know when you got taller
See our reflection in the water
Off a bridge at the Huntington
I hopped the fence when I was seventeen
Then I knew what I wanted

[Verse 2]
And when I grow up, I'm gonna look up
From my phone and see my life
And it's gonna be just like my recurring dream
I'm at the movies, I don't remember what I'm seeing
The screen turns into a tidal wave
Then it's a dorm room, like a hedge maze
And when I find you
You touch my leg, and I insist
But I wake up before we do it

It was released through Dead Oceans on February 26, 2020, as the lead single from Bridgers' second studio album, Punisher (2020). "Garden Song" was produced by Bridgers herself alongside Tony Berg and Ethan Gruska. The song features "a wave of shimmery synths" and "delicate, crushing vocals", with its lyrics depicting "a scene from a fairytale, one that includes a house resting on a hill with thousands of roses (and probably a few ghosts)". Bridgers stated that the song was about "manifesting things the more you think about stuff" as well as "[her] own growth". It has also been described as "steeped in melancholy" as Bridgers "unravels past memories that anticipated growing up.
