Chorus If only our pictures were perfect as you I'd order them buried at sea There's not enough space in this Earthly place For something as perfect as you are to me Verse 1 If only our pictures were perfect as you They'd be in museums on display For the wealthy to come and admire As they arrive via cabriolet They'd be hung by the van Gogh's and Rembrandt's Admired for both depth and style Not far from the Mona Lisa Who now has a reason to smile Repeat Chorus Verse 2 If only our pictures were perfect as you They'd be on display in the foyer In every mansion of every movie star From New York to LA They'd be the focal point of attention All who behold them would stare Frozen moments in time Called inspired, divine A vision of romance so rare Repeat Chorus Bridge This is nothing more than the dreams of wasted youth A wonderful ideal without a shred of truth Emotion descending There goes the glory Obscuring the love that remained in our story Love makes the worthless beautiful I believe the signs That when in love We see with our hearts Not our eyes or minds XXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXX XX XXXX XXX XXXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXXX XX XXX XXX XXXXX XXXX XXXXXX XX XXX XXXXXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXXX XX XXXX XXXXXXX XXXXX XXX XXXXXXXXX XX XXXXXXX XX XXX XXX XX XX XX XXXX XXX XXXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXXX XX XXX XXXXXX XX XXXXXXXXX XXX XXXXXXXXXX XX XXX XXXXXXXX XX XXXXXX XX XXXX XXXX XX X XXXXX XXXX XXX XXX XX XXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXXX XX XXXX XXX XXXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXXX XX XXX XX XXXX XXX XXXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXXX XX XXX XX XXXX XXX XXXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXXX XX XXX XX XXXXXXX XX XXXXXXX XX XXXXXXX

Flowers In The Dirt

By Michael Facciani


This lyric details the story of a hippy flower child from the 1960s who is stuck in that time period and never changes and adapts to the present day and ends up an anachronism in the eyes of now people in 2018.
