lyrics

You Don't Bring Me Flowers Anymore

I ask you for a drink of water but you’re bringing me wine all the time.

At first it was polite. You treated me nice, but after a bottle I can’t tell what’s right.

The ring you put on my finger matches the tattoo on my arm
of 2 hearts colliding in a firefight underneath the full moonlight.
But you ask for a dance and I feel just like the first time we met.
You get that look in your eye the kind you find behind
the door that’s locked you can’t get inside.
But oh. when we dance I feel just like the first time we touched.
You get that look in your eye the kind you find behind
the door that’s locked you can’t get inside.

You said violation is the only way to a man’s heart.
The siren rang when we first touched. Now I can’t turn it off.

When you left this time you left no trace I could find.
I’m gonna close my eyes and dream of you and I and kiss the air just one more time.
10 years since I met you. 10 Years since we’ve been apart.

You don’t bring me flowers anymore so these tears will have to water my heart.
