"Language of Flowers"

This is the language you spoke
as we rode through the valley
carelessly I went along
cause the light from the sun
follows you where you go

Hillsides rain
something strange I never knew
my worries in hand
lead me on quicker through

You stopped for a moment
and pointed out
said "the wolves in the field are proud"
some born kind of sin
that silently walk the earth

Gust of wind
sweep me back in
turn me into a lover
so I will not lose another

Show me clouds
what you've done with the moon
I've seen Spring in these woods
and Autumn buried in her eyes
so wild eyed one
keep me by your side
silk-clothed rose
soft-draped Willow

This is the language you took
from abandoned gardens
Now only yours
