about

This album, to me, is the journey
from the first wound to healing,
painted with music and lyrics.

Written from 2010 to 2017, between life as a hitchhiking busker
in the streets of Europe and chasing the sound, I have recorded
and produced these eight songs in autumn and winter 2016/17,
mostly in my Berlin bedroom-studio, with the idea to create
something that feels close to what happens live on stage.

about

The Night Gardener Berlin, Germany

Singer-Songwriter / Alternative Folk

Live-Teaser: youtu.be/gBGbs4ep_vw

It's all about looking, and focusing, and going deeper, trying to pull something very rare out, and then holding it next to another object that had been retrieved, seeing how well they could speak to each other, and then continuing that process.

Track Name: Modern Plays
Love, come and then go
Kick in my door
Lie on the floor
Sing me a song
Tell me a lie
Be here and then gone

Oh, tell me you will
Wait here for me
To calm my mind
You better decide to stay
Stay

You can come and then go
Leave with the morning sun
Rehearse your modern plays
Get lost, but don’t run

It’s a lot to take
When two hearts are apart
Awake and nothing can be done
Awake and not

And if all hope fades
And in time I might recover
From these wounds

Oh, if all else fails
Can you put on that black dress
And swoon me again, again
Again, again

You can come and then go
Leave with the morning sun
Rehearse your modern plays
Get lost, but don’t run

You can come and then go
I won’t make it alone
I’ll just drink up your wine
No wild horse left to ride
No truth in these lies
Oh, come and then go
Track Name: Fall And Spin
Then you burst
And pour yourself into the wind
You’ve waited and waited
And now you spin

Oh, the rivers
And water on your face
I knew longing
But yours is a higher pace

So I fall and pray
World, stop turning
For another day

I knew love
The kind not too hard to replace
The ghosts in my backyard
My fire was wasted

Oh, I shiver
Calling back your taste
I knew winning
But now it’s a different race

So I fall and pray
World, stop turning
For another, another day

Oh lover, I hear you cry
Oh lover, I hear you cry
I fall and spin
I fall
I fall (oh lover)
And spin (I hear you cry)
Track Name: The Teacher
She wanted to go out
And travel the world by herself
She told me when I sat beside her
“Prepare for a fight!”
So I taught her to lie
I taught her to lie
I taught her to lie

When I traveled the world
I had learned
There are little things worse
Than giving up on your wantings
So I taught her to rise
I taught her to rise

And stepping on stones
In the dust coloured roads
Was an act of joy to her
Then she broke a leg
And fell on her knees
And I carried her to St. West
And I taught her to dream
I taught her to dream
I taught her to dream

Then she fell asleep
Peacefully smiling in bliss
I held her in my arms
And when she woke up
She denied getting kissed
So I taught her to leave
I taught her to leave
I taught her to leave

I gave her the tools
For the road, for the sky
For the sea, for the hills
And the nights

I taught her to dream
And always be free
And flee from emptiness
I taught her to dream
Track Name: Change Of Heart
I stand here in linen and cord
You’re all feathered up
Sheddin’ out all the memories
Of your ways to the top

As you beg for attention
And money and fame
I tell you I’ve been there
There’s nothing to gain

I tell you I’ve been there
And now I’m insane
And John and Lorraine claim
Elaine is to blame

And all I need
Is a change of heart
And all I need
Is a change of heart

My friends, I tell you
There’s really no lord left to fear
The heretic kings of the past
Were never our peers

I’ll write a concert in days
You’ll think it took me a year
Well, it’s never just a matter of time
In times of need, my dear

Depraved simulations
Of life and art
It’s a great deal of work
Like another new war

Now go, free the pawns
Send home the guards
Your call to repentance
Is my call to arms

And all you need
Is a change of heart
And all you need
Is a change of heart

To all the whirred and worried
Pause to make amends
For all the gold and glory
Has torn and crippled your hands

Love, love, love, oh oh oh oh
Love, love, love, oh oh oh oh
Love, love, love, oh oh oh oh
Love, love, love, oh oh oh oh

And all you need
Is a change of heart
And all you need
Is a little love

And all you need
Is a brand new car
And all you need
Is to leave it all

Leave it it all
Leave it it all
Leave it it all
Track Name: In My Wake
In my wake you run
From all that I feed you
From all that you feel now
From all that I fear

And in my wake you turn
Curled up like a baby
In my wake all is loose
All is loose

Stones from the sky, love
Look how they’re all passing by
This is not who we are, love
This is not who we are

And there’s always love
And there is all this desire
And there is always grace
And there are all these stones

Stones from the sky, love
And they’re all passing by
This is not who we are, love
This is not who we are, oh no

And in my wake we’re naked
And in my wake we dream
And we are not who we are, love
We are not who we are
We are not who we are, love

We are not who we are
We are not who we are, love
We are not who we are

We are not who we are, love
We are not who we are
We are not who we are, love
We are
Track Name: Come Monkey
Come monkey, come walk with me
I know, I know, you’re slow
I’ll carry you, I’ll carry you
I know, I know, I know where to go

Two sides at war
Fighting over
The right way to love
I want it all
A soldier on both sides
I shoot and I fall

Come monkey, come walk with me
I know, I know, you’re slow
I’ll carry you, I’ll carry you
I know, I know, I know where to go

Both feet on the ground
A fool in love
Looks for rules in love
I know
It goes round and round
And round and round
And round and round and

Come monkey, come walk with me
I know, I know, you’re slow
I’ll carry you, I’ll carry you
I know, I know, I know

Come monkey, come walk with me
I know, I know, I’m slow
You carry me, you carry me
You know, you know, you know

It goes round and round
And round and round
And round and round
And round and round

And round and round
And round and round
And round and round
And round and round
And
Track Name: Sticks And Stones
Look at us now
How we bind and heal our wounds
How we watch each other fold
And go home

We broke it all
Broke the rules
We broke our bones, oh no
With sticks and stones

Oh, what have we done, my friend
How far did we go
Oh, what’s going on, my friend
Did we lose it all, did we

We could cry
Scream from the top of our lungs
We could rest and then shake off
All the weight we’ve learned
Belonged to us

We could burn
Burn it all
We could heal and breathe
And live and learn to take the fall

Oh, what have we done, my friend
How far did we go
Oh, what’s going on, my friend
Did we lose it all, did we

Break all you’ve learned about yourself
You’ve learned about yourself
It was never you, never you, never, oh

Break all you’ve learned about yourself
You’ve learned about yourself
It was never you, no

Oh, what, how far
Did we lose it all, did we
Oh, what, how far
Did we lose it all, did we

We broke it all
Broke the rules
We broke our bones, oh no
With sticks and stones
Track Name: These Are The Parts
Please be for me
What I can’t be for you
Paint me a room
With a hammock for two

And come when I tell you to come
Let everything go
And run, faster now
Make me feel slower than slow

Oh, I could free you
From the pressure of pleasing me
From the labour of loving me

Just give me time
Give me time
Give me time
Give me time, give me

Love will help
Love will heal
Love will help
Love will heal
