lyrics

You used to give me your blue heart
You used to give me your blue heart
Then it all just fell apart
Now i got the blue but none the heart
And there ain't no way to fix this
oh no
You just gotta clean it up
And there ain't no way to fix this
You just gotta clean it up

They call that "Love, Death and Flowers"
"Love, Death, and Flowers"
it's over my head now
under my bed now
I'm on the ground now
crawling around now
"Love, Death, and Flowers"
"Love, Death, and Flowers"
It's over my head now
I'm off the bed now
onto the ground now
crawling around now

I woke up covered in blue kisses
I woke up covered in blue kisses
and i don't know how they got there
but, hey, I ain't complaining

They call that "Love, Death and Flowers"
"Love, Death, and Flowers"
it's over my head now
under my bed now
I'm on the ground now
crawling around now
"Love, Death, and Flowers"
"Love, Death, and Flowers"
It's over my head now
under my bed now
I'm on the ground now
crawling around now

I'm in a field of blue roses
In a field of blue roses
and I couldn't tell you why
but my feet can touch the sky

so if you see me in the morning
just know that that ain't me
and if you see me in the nighttime
just know that that ain't me
so if you see me in the morning
just know that that ain't me
and if you see me in the nighttime
just know that that ain't me

I'll say it one more time.

and if you see me in the morning
just know that that ain't me
and if you see me in the nighttime
just know that that ain't me

No, it's a spirit or a phantom or something. Ya know. You might ay well just leave it alone or catch it in a bottle as it roams. If you see me just know that ain't me no more.
