Lyrics

Waking up to a songbird is the best way that I know
Eyes as clear as a morning star, breeze blowing in from the backyard
I sleep in the nude but I sleep alone ‘cause I know it’s the bed of my childhood
And that solitude feels so good ‘cause it’s mine
The taste of that water is a drug and the smell of these hills is sweet enough to sustain me

And the longer the summer days go by the shorter they become
I came a few thousand miles just to see them before they’re gone
Tiger lily- there’s something about you
Tiger lily- take me home, flower child

I will write no more of writer’s block but only of summer stars
And the sound of the crickets in the trees around that have me reeling even now
When my hands are buried in those blossoms I know I could drown in that garden
And the weeds may have grown a little out of control but I don’t mind
Tempted as I may be to dig my feet down deep this is my time to be uprooted I know

And the longer the summer days go by the shorter they become
I came a few thousand miles just to see them before they’re gone
Tiger lily- there’s something about you
Tiger lily- take me home, flower child

In a dream I’m driving and the water’s rising fast
Pours right into my windows, and then I’m dry on a dirt road
No one else seems to be surprised but it’s been years since I’ve seen him
And he steps out of the woods like it’s no big deal smelling like gasoline
And out of the grass the crickets sound, rising up just as my wheels touch the ground

And the longer the summer days go by the shorter they become
I came a few thousand miles just to see them before they’re gone
Tiger lily- there’s something about you
Tiger lily- take me home, flower child
