  • Lyrics: FLOWER GIRL:   Roses are red, blood red Don't wear white, it too easily stains Wear long sleeves, the tracks of your tears May be hard to explain Your skin as soft as magnolia petals And as white as pearls You're beautiful, you're a fragile thing My Flower Girl It was a blue sky day in June We were at a wedding And I whispered to you "How long do you think it will last?" "Don't be so cynical" you said, "Not everybody Has to drag around a past like your past." You're right I'm sorry I know somewhere there's a perfect world Deep inside your dandelion soul My Flower Girl The roses in the vase They won't last till morning But then morning is hours and hours away I wouldn't make a lot of long term plans if I were you But then God laughs at the plans we make In the morning sun the petals have begun To wilt and curl Close your eyes Let the light wash over you My Flower Girl
