Flowers lyrics - Hadestown

Flowers lyrics


What I wanted was to fall asleep
Close my eyes and disappear
Like a petal on a stream,
A feather on the air

Lily white and poppy red
I trembled when he laid me out
"You won’t feel a thing," he said, "when you go down"

Nothing gonna wake you now...

Dreams are sweet until they’re not
Men are kind until they aren’t
Flowers bloom until they rot and fall apart

Is anybody listening?
I open my mouth
And nothing comes out
Nothing, nothing gonna wake me now

I remember fields
Of flowers
Soft beneath my heels
Walking in the sun
I remember someone
Someone by my side
Turned his face to mine
And then I turned away
Into the shade

You, the one I left behind
If you ever walk this way
Come and find me
Lying in the bed I made
