The Flowers Lyrics By Regina Spektor

The flowers you gave me are rotting and still I refuse to throw them away.
Some of the bulbs never opened quite fully
They might so i’m waiting and staying awake.
Things I have loved i’m allowed to keep
I’ll never know if I go to sleep.
The papers around me are piling and twisting regina the paper back mummy
what then.
I’m taking the knife to the books that I own and chopping and chopping and boiling soup from stone.
Things I have loved i’m allowed to keep.
I’ll never know if I go to sleep.
Things I have loved i’m allowed to keep.
I’ll never know if I go to sleep.
