Flowers & Dreams

A new version of an old song, in homage to Baltimore.



Do you know who you are?
You walk right through the door
One more time
Unlike before.
What brings you back
To tell me "no" again
In your way
In my song?
I see you've changed
Before I look again;
I think about it
All night long.

Flowers and dreams
Never can stay.
Miracles no longer
Get in my way.
Oh yeah I'll give another stranger
The time of day.
From where you look
To where you go
Fly, fly away.

There is nothing at all
In this old avenue
But firedogs dying away.
I can hardly keep track
Of all I've thrown away
Tryin' to get back
To where I start.
And when I'm lost
Another day brings a new
Chance to cry.

Flowers and dreams
Never can stay.
Miracles no longer
Get in my way.
Oh yeah I'll give another stranger
The time of day.

Flowers and dreams
Never can stay.
Miracles no longer
Get in my way.
Oh yeah I'll give another stranger
The time of day.
From where you look
To where you go
Fly, fly away.

I know who you are.
Maybe you can tell me
Who I am,
What I've become,
You wish me luck.
I long that someday
You will find
Another cave
To reach with your hand
And find in the dark
The love that you gave.
