about

I had a friend or two in mind when I wrote this song,
moreover though, it relates to a lot of people unfortunately. I wrote it at home, alone, in Moorpark, California at the time.

lyrics

FLOWERS ON YOUR GRAVE

I've been tryin' to tell you, better watch your wicked ways
Keep doin' what you're doin', and count your days
Now you don't have to listen, I know you've heard it all before
So all I'm gonna say, is I'll put flowers on your grave

I've grown tired of watiing for your attitude to change
Sometimes I thought you'd grown up, but no, you're just the same
I guess you just won't listen, you think you've heaerd it all before
So all I'm gonna say, is I'll put flowers on your grave

I'll put flowers on your grave
And there'll be teardrops in my eyes
I'll be so sad when you pass away
But I won't be surprised

You don't seem to worry, you just take another pill
Smoke, snort, sniff or drink, whatever gets the thrill
Now you don't have to listen, I know you think I'm just no fun
But I have to wonder still, just how much pain you plan to kill

If you can't see to stop it, at least just stop until
You get yourself a lawyer, and write yourself a will
Now you don't have to listen, I know you think I'm just no fun
but I have to wonder still, just how much pain you plan to kill

I'll put flowers on your grave
And there'll be teardrops in my eyes
I'll be so sad when you pass away
But I won't be surprised

I'll put flowers on your grave
And there'll be teardrops in my eyes
I'll be so sad
But I won't be surprised
