Flower

lyrics

My mother thought I stole it from a garden
but I picked it in the marsh

Pick some, give them round
put it in your hair, drive downtown
they’re on the kitchen table
floating on the walls
they’re dancing on my dress
fear is a beautiful flower
folds its petals round
holds me in its fragrant soft and gentle power

Blue of need, green of greed
red of rage, pink and yellow gold,
oh let me hold you
fear is a beautiful flower

Garden party under the trees
drink in hand, little bit of breeze
words are falling like a gentle rain
feeding all the beautiful flowers
folds its petals round
holds me in its fragrant soft and gentle power

Chrysanthemum, rose and lily
great big bunch
brought 'em to me
the night he said he loved me
fear is a beautiful flower
