My love, your promises
Were only flowers.
I waited for you,
For such a long time,
All I had to cling to
Were my flowers
And pretend that they were still alive.

I waited for you,
After you left me,
For such a long time,
You never came back for me.

Your promises
Were nothing but flowers.
They were all I had to cling to
While I waited for you.
I clung to every dead, pretty promise,
Every dry, wilted flower,
And I wept, and I prayed for them to be alive.

They were all I had to cling to
While I waited for you,
But I waited for such a long time.
You never came back for me.

You left me
Frozen
broken
alone
You're promises were nothing but flowers, my love...
