I know a girl with daisies growing on her head
Her hair is like the summer, but her eyes are cold and dead
And now she's gone, and she took my freedom with her

She stood outside my doorway, knocking like a war
The next thing I remember, I was dead there on the floor
And she was gone, and she took my freedom with her

But right then I remembered what you said that you would be
That even when I'm dead you'd be the life inside of me
And only once the sound of my own heart had ceased to beat
It was then that you could breathe the breath of life back into me, and set me free

Everything you told me, I made it all go wrong
Indifference became me and betrayal wrote my song
And now I'm lost, and I took my freedom from me

But right then I remembered what you said that you would be
That even when I'm dead you'd be the life inside of me
And only once the sound of my own heart had ceased to beat
It was then that you could breathe the breath of life back into me

My heart's fallen from your tree
And it's severed on the ground
Scared to beat another beat
For fear of wearing out
But thats exactly what I need
Is a cardiac arrest
To show this dry and brittle heart
That to beat another beat would be the death of me

But right then I remembered what you said that you would be
That even when I'm dead you'd be the life inside of me
And only once the sound of my own heart had ceased to beat
It was then that you could breathe the breath of life back into me, and set me free
