Flowers 04:21
i put your flowers in a jar beside my bed that night before i went to sleep thoughts of you danced in my head and when i woke, my room smelled sweet waved goodbye to all my grey skies and let your sunlight burn me up and even though i’d end up blistered still i couldn’t get enough and now it’s easier to breathe these spring rains will wash me clean i’ll take the flowers that we’d grown and plant a garden all my own (g) i tore down the walls you built me and built new ones painted blue but every time i saw the sunshine it reminded me of you i took the flowers from my bedside and the stars out of my eyes and as the blindness was subsiding i saw the flowers all had died

when you were young with flowers in your hair staring off into that great big world out there filled with hope that you could have it all what a shame that the petals had to fall when you were young when you were young colors shone brighter and life dragged on when you were young when you were young you never dreamt one day it’d all be gone when you were young your eyes were filled with light but you stared at the sun and it just got too bright your dreams became sun spots, colors lingering in your brain but all too soon they began to fade away when you were young when you were young colors shone brighter and life dragged on when you were young when you were young you never dreamt one day it’d all be gone and looking back on it now you wonder that there’s not a way to turn back time somehow when you were young when you were young colors shone brighter and life dragged onp when you were young when you were young you never dreamt one day it’d all be gone
