lyrics

You say, you say love is better, better when it's blind
You say, you say it's better not to have him on my mind
Going and gone, she goes back, back forward into time
Forgetting, forgetting what she has, forget not to

Cry, Cry, crying through the night
Even when there's nothing on her mind

I found you drinking dandelions
You never wanted to grow up
Never wanted to grow old without him

I saw you shooting lavender
Wrinkles where you used to smile
And acting just like an old child
She says it's better when it's mild
But knows that it's not worth the while
But went along with it and smiled

Decades ago, he once held you, held you in his arms
but don't cha know, she says, "He's just working on the farm."
You go, I go, tell her that our papa's gone away
But even so, she loves him more, more and more each

Day each day like the one before it
Everyday she hurts like it was yesterday

I found you drinking dandelions
You never wanted to grow up
Never wanted to grow old without him

I saw you shooting lavender
Wrinkles where you used to smile
And acting just like an old child
She says it's better when it's mild
But knows that it's not worth the while
But went along with it and smiled

Sleepless nights and wakeful sights
Her life, loses sense of time
Placid smiles masked beguile
Sundown 'til dawn, 'til everyone thinks your wrong
Past the iris, who keeps track
What's on, it looks as though you've gone

I found you drinking dandelions
You never wanted to grow up
Never wanted to grow old without him

I saw you shooting lavender
Wrinkles where you used to smile
And acting just like an old child
She says it's better when it's mild
But knows that it's not worth the while
You could see the light, leaving her eyes

Her eyes
Her eyes
Leaving her eyes
