Flowers Grow To Die

I don’t know if I’m wishing for you
Or if I just need you to occupy my time
I don’t know if I want you to kiss me
But I’m pretty sure I’d like it if you tried

So let’s walk by the river
Where flowers grow to die
Where when men drink the water
Their eyes grow moist, and their lips grow dry

I think I’ll always be out of reach
Out of touch out of time out of everything
I know you’re not a piece of me
Even though you suppose you’re supposed to be

I don’t know if I’m wishing for you
Or if I just need you to occupy my time
I don’t know if I want you to kiss me
But I’m pretty sure I’d like it if you tried

With your wooden smiles, and your painted on eyes
If I said I was leavin I don't think you would mind
With your folded arms, you’re a twisted kind
If I said I was leaving, I don’t think you would mind

So let’s walk by the river
Where raindrops taste like wine
And we’ll step in the water
And that’ll be when I say goodbye

So look at me through broken glass
Through your rearview mirror, through memories past
And I promise that I’ll see you
By my reflection in the river as I pass through

I don’t know if you’re wishing for me
Or if you just need me to occupy your time
I don’t know if you want me to kiss you
But I’m pretty sure you’d like it if I tried

So let's walk by the river
Where flowers grow to die
And when we drink the water
Our eyes grow moist, and our lips grow dry.

I don't know if I'm wishin for you
I think I just need you to occupy my time
I don't know if I'm ever gonna kiss you
But Baby stick around, and maybe someday I'll try

So let's walk by the river
Where flowers grow to die
And we'll step in the water
And that'll be when I say goodbye
