Wild Flowers

lyrics

wild flowers when you were young
made you as happy as red roses do now
you used to think love was all around you then
now you know a deeper darkness surrounds

wild flowers when you were young
tied in chains to lay around your neck
the purple peonies you wore in your hair
you always thought that they smelled the best

the sun seems not to move at all
until it does and then its gone
and all the days go just the same
and all the days go just the same

wild flowers when you were young
made you as happy as red roses do now
you believed in each plucked prophecy
love foretold in petals piled all around

wild flowers in a brilliant boquet
hung to dry in the light of the window bay
you loved to watch all the colors fade away
it makes your heart feel melancholy
it makes your heart feel melancholy
it makes your heart feel melancholy
it makes your heart feel melancholy
it makes your heart feel melancholy

my lover is slim as summer
and often just as listless
my memories of her
are all honeydew and hibiscus
hibiscus
the sun seems not to move at all
until it does and then its gone
and all the days go just the same
and all the days go just the same
