On my body I have saved a space for one more head
I've kept it clear 'cause one day soon my momma will be dead
And on that day I'll place her body under backyard pines
And keep her head, awake and lovely, smiling next to mine

And I don't care, I don't care
Blue flowers fade, blue flowers fade, blue flowers fade

From my window I can see the hill where we once sat
It's different now, the houses have grown and the people all got fat
And I can't stand the way they look at us, it comes as a surprise
The flowers growing under us, they kill them with their eyes

And I'm so sorry, I'm so sorry
Blue flowers fade, blue flowers fade, blue flowers fade

If I could save you I would
If I could give you back your blood
I would, I would

The flowers growing under us
They kill them with their eyes
The flowers growing under us
They kill them with their eyes
