lyrics

You held a yellow rose
In between your toes
You said they’re hard to find

You held a broken doll
We watched the buildings fall
You said it’s in my mind

And you say that everybody’s trying to live forever
Well I’ll just stay as close to you as I can get
And you say that everybody’s trying to sing together
You know I'll watch your mouth for the words when I forget

A freckle on your knee
Your dress was blowing free
You said the sun can make you blind

You held a grain of sand
We watched the airplanes land
You said we could’ve died

And you say that everybody’s trying to live forever
And when the sun goes down it spreads across the land
And you say that everybody’s praying for something better
You know I’ll die with a yellow rose in my hand
