Fresh Flowers

from by Valyermo



Cryin in my beer again, but it still don’t mask the taste
Of the memory of the lips I kissed, and I can’t forget your face

They won’t let us stay together, and I can’t bear to be apart
So I’m digging up your fresh grave, to be closer to your heart

If you can’t love the one you’re with, then be with the one you loved
Even if you ain’t around above ground, stay close my turtledove

I’ll keep you warm beside me, cook your meals and mend your threads
and take the flowers from your grave, and put ‘em right next to our bed

she told me that she loved me, but I never did say it back
the last time before I lost her, when she was shot in the back

My girl was mixed up with the wrong crowd, and she couldn't quite break away
But I love her still and always will, in my own special way
