"Flower Child" as written by Thomas Helmig and William Ehrlichmann....
You take that perfect seed
You plant that love so deep
You fold your hands and pray for rain

Daddy liked to drink and smoke
Mama thought your dreams were a joke
You grew up dark in a garden of pain

Like the sun and the rain forgot your name

When nobody waters a flower child
You get this scared little girl with a broken heart
Growing wild I think I’m in love
I’ve got the water for my flower child

My love can fill this pail
And bring you back to health
And make those petals wanna stay

You’ve gone from man to man to man
But still you cannot stand
I’ve got the sun right in my hands

Can’t you see that I will understand? I'll understand

When nobody waters a flower child
You get a scared little girl with a broken heart
Growing wild I think I’m in love
Oh my flower child I think I’m in love
I’ve got the water for my flower child

Has the light gotten through to you?
Don’t be afraid to say you feel it too
I know inside you there’s a sweet perfume

When nobody waters a flower child
You get this scared little girl with a broken heart
Growing wild I think I’m in love
I’ve got the water

When nobody waters the flower child
You get a scared little girl with a broken heart
Growing wild I think I’m in love
Oh my flower child I think I’m in love
(I’ve got the water) growing wild, I think I’m in love
(I could bring my love to you) flower child I think I'm in love
