Flower Days

flower days have to wait
sunshine through the filtered haze
we settle down and wonder
about the rhymes we've known since nine
how they've changed the way we see

in the dark, you and me
we could feel but not see
we were so young
we were in need
but we just couldn't care
in the time of blue leaves
through the door open wide
we put asid our only pride
and settled down our hunger


baby in the night
gently by the firelight
we settle down to dream
beyond the walls, beyond the seams
i see my love in green
