Brie Spaulding - Flowers for the Dead

 















[Verse 1]

So you're back again to plead

After all the things that I've said

You're bringing flowers to me

Like you'd bring flowers for the dead

But we've done all this before

You know better than to call me yours

I'm not the one to fall for

Don't show up and beg at my front door


[Pre-chorus]

My love is six feet under


[Chorus]

Don't stay, you're overreaching

Don't wait for me, 'cause you can't teach me

Don't pray for me, 'cause God can't reach me

To me a rose is just a weed

So it's time to set me free

There's only you, there is no “we”

You and I can never be

I'm sorry


[Verse 2]

Think you'd get down on one knee?

Then I'd walk in white and say a vow?

Like you're all I'd ever need

Like I'd be better off somehow

Well, it all was broken

Put together then it broke again

I won't forget where I've been

Truth is that love can't always win


[Pre-chorus]

My love is six feet under


[Chorus]

Don't stay, you're overreaching

Don't wait for me, 'cause you can't teach me

Don't pray for me, 'cause God can't reach me

To me a rose is just a weed

So it's time to set me free

There's only you, there is no “we”

You and I will never be

I'm sorry


[Verse 3]

When you say you need me

Only gives me pain in my head

Stop bringing flowers to me

It's like bringing flowers for the dead


[Pre-chorus]

My love is six feet under


[Outro]

Don't stay, you're overreaching (You and I will never be)

Don't wait for me, 'cause you can't teach me (You and I will never be)

Don't pray for me, 'cause God can't reach me

And bringing flowers to me

Is like bringing flowers for the dead

My love is six feet under
