Artist: The Tallest Man On Earth
Album: Shallow Grave
I sense a runner in the garden
Although my judgements known to fail
Once built a steamboat in a meadow
Cos I'd forgotten how to sail
I know the runner's going to tell you
There ain't no cowboy in my hair
So now he's buried by the daisies
So I could stay the tallest man in your eyes, babe
I sense a spy up in the chimney
From all the evidence I've burned
I guess he'll read it in the smoke now
And soon to ashes I'll return
I know the spy is going to tell you
It's not my flag up in the pole
So now he's buried by the lilies
So I could stay forever more in your eyes, babe
I sense a leak inside my phone now
From all the lies that I have told
I know he has your private number
And soon he'll make that vicious call
I know the leak is going to tell you
There ain't no puppy in your leash
So now he'll fertilize the roses
So I could stay the king you see
In your eyes, babe (x2)
So now we're dancing through the garden
And what a garden I have made
And now that death will grow my jasmine
I find it soothing I'm afraid
Now there is no need for suspicion
There ain't no fraud kissing your hand
I won't be lying when I tell you
That I'm a gardner I'm a man
In your eyes babe (x3)

I think you're giving this more thought than the guy who wrote it...
I think it's about a guy who knows he has to tell his wife something that could end their relationship, but he doesn't want it to end. So instead he buries that part of himself and ignores the problem so that they can stay together in ignorant bliss. He is the runner, the spy, and the gardener, but he only lets the gardener part of himself survive.
I'm guessing this is about a man whose wife is cheating on him due to his possessive nature. Now, instead of dealing with this problem he just kills his wives' lovers and pretends that everything is alright living in an illusion he created for himself ("And what a garden I have made").
so someone died right? I'm guessing the cheater.
