WALLFLOWERS

i could never love the same man twice
and though you’ve got that stare so nice
your head’s like tigers and your heart’s like mice
your fists are fire and your fingers ice

and i know that the cold is what you hate the most
but it’s part of you and you are its host
you’ll never be rid unless you d brown on the coast
and even if you did you would just be a ghost
and even if you did you would just be a ghost

sweet blue flowers climbing the wall
i hope that i grow twenty feet tall
sweet blue flowers watching it all
i hope that this house crumbles and falls

when winter comes on icy air
i bet you’ll cut off all of your hair
but nothing could ever compare
to knowing that i put you there

so don’t come asking for advice
when it comes at too high a price
and i could never love the same twice
no i could never love the same twice

sweet blue flowers climbing the wall
i hope that i grow twenty feet tall

sweet blue flowers watching it all
i hope that this house crumbles and falls

sweet blue flowers start to unfold
i hope i live to be a hundred years old
sweet blue flowers die in the cold
i hope that this house turns into gold
