“I made a promise to not let go

Our tug of war has only made me want you more

Steeped in hard luck and doomed to roam

My love is braver than you know

Jet black starlit midnight rolls

I am down in the garden where I let go.”

Lyrics from Will It Grow by Jakob Dylan from the 2008 album Seeing Things
