weeds

mp3 is located here

i miss her in the morning i don’t understand
i guess it just reminds me of the life that we had planned
you can have tomorrow lord knows it will be
just another warm sunny empty day for me

all the weeds in the garden will be roses tonight
now i lay me down to sleep
put out the light
i will dream her back to me but every dream must end
that’s when all the roses turn to weeds again

a man’s not one for crying but i don’t fair too well
one look in these desperate eyes and you’d be sure to tell
i’ve been down the road of life got lost along the way
save my soul from dying lord i don’t know how to pray

all the weeds in the garden will be roses tonight
now i lay me down to sleep
put out the light
i will dream her back to me but every dream must end
that’s when all the roses turn to weeds…

again and again i keep asking myself why
did i ever leave you
how could i say goodbye

a heart can’t really break in two that’s what i've been told
but i've got one that's made of glass
i'll trade for one of gold

all the weeds in the garden will be roses tonight
now i lay me down to sleep
put out the light
i will dream her back to me but every dream must end
that’s when all the roses
turn to. . .

weeds in the garden will be roses tonight
now i lay me down to sleep
put out the light
i will dream her back to me but every dream must end
that’s when all the roses turn to weeds again
that’s when all the weeds
are just weeds
