"Flowers"

[EURYDICE]
What I wanted was to fall asleep
Close my eyes and disappear

Like a petal on a stream, a feather on the air

Lily white and poppy red
I trembled when he laid me out
You won't feel a thing, he said, when you go down
Nothing gonna wake you now

Dreams are sweet, until they're not
Men are kind, until they aren't
Flowers bloom, until they rot, and fall apart

Is anybody listening?
I open my mouth and nothing comes out

Nothing, nothing gonna wake me now

Flowers, I remember fields of flowers
Soft beneath my heels
Walking in the sun, I remember someone
Someone by my side, turned his face to mine
And then I turned away, into the shade


You, the one I left behind
If you ever walk this way

Come and find me lying in the bed I made
