When I poured my heart out,
Blood flowed
I planted you, watered you with tears
And watched you grow
Away from me
So much for my green thumb
I've overstayed my welcome

Plant white roses and plan to cry
If I can't spend my life with you
Plant white roses, I wanna die
If I can't spend my life with you

When you're gone I stumble
And fall
I'm told you don't wanna stay around
Those trains call
You're all I need
But you need more than country songs
You need to be getting along

Plant white roses, I wanna die
If I can't spend my life with you
Plant white roses and plan to cry
If I can't spend my life with you

You'll have to stay,
You'll have to stay and watch them grow
You'll have to stay,
You'll have to stay and watch them grow
You'll have to stay,
You'll have to stay and watch them grow

Plant white roses and plan to cry
If I can't spend my life with you
Plant white roses, I wanna die
If I can't spend my life with you
My life with you
My life with you ..

    MemoryI know Merritt didn't like this song and ended up not releasing it, really, but when I first discovered it, I loved it. I listened to it very, very often during a bad point in time a few years back. I heard them play it live, to my surprise, and it was wonderful.
