Wildflowers


Verse 1

Painted a pretty rainbow on the bedroom wall
Gonna have to hide it when the landlord calls
I don’t care cos I just wanna see you smile
Even if it’s only for a little while

Verse 2

Drew pictures of a bright yellow sunshine
In a blue, blue sky
And put them in every window
Cos you won’t go outside
And that’s ok, maybe it will only be today
The world can wait til you’re ready to come out and play

Chorus

I’ll pick you wildflowers
The ones you said look like weeds
I think they’re beautiful and
They look like proper flowers to me
And I promise I’ll still love ya
Like you always ask me to
But the truth is baby, I can’t see myself with no-one but you
Cos the truth is baby, there ain’t no-one in this world like you

Bridge

And when you’re feeling better, we can go climb trees
In the park behind our back yard
Then lay out in the dark, on the cool green grass
And count all the stars
We can stay there all night
Lay quietly, I don’t mind


Chorus

I’ll pick you wildflowers
The ones you said look like weeds
I think they’re beautiful and
They look like proper flowers to me
And I promise I’ll still love ya
Like you always ask me to
But the truth is baby, I can’t see myself with no-one but you
Cos the truth is baby, there ain’t no-one in this world like you


Chorus

I’ll pick you wildflowers
The ones you said look like weeds
I think they’re beautiful and
They look like proper flowers to me
And I promise I’ll still love ya
Like you always ask me to
But the truth is baby, I can’t see myself with no-one but you
Cos the truth is baby, there ain’t no-one in this world like you

Verse 1

Looking out my window
And I can’t seem to shake this mood
I ain’t got it so bad
But I still got it bad for you

Verse 2

These days they just drag on by
Watching the clock but it’s still telling lies
And nothing but a bottle’s gonna get me through
Baby I don’t think, I’m ever getting over you

PreChorus

And it’s gonna be a long, long night
It’s gonna be a long, long night
It’s gonna be a long, long night

Bridge

It’s the same old same
Still playing those mind games
It’s the same old thing
Good excuse for another drink

PreChorus

And it’s gonna be a long, long night
It’s gonna be a long, long night
It’s gonna be a long, long night

Looking out my window
And I can’t seem to shake this mood
I ain’t got it so bad
But I still got it bad for you

Looking out my window
And I can’t seem to shake this mood
I ain’t got it so bad
But I still got it bad for you

Looking out my window
And I can’t seem to shake this mood
I ain’t got it so bad
But I still got it bad for you

And it’s gonna be a long, long night
It’s gonna be a long, long night
It’s gonna be a long, long night

Another long, long night
Another long, long night

Long, Long Night
