White Lilies

February 13, 2021


 [Verse 1]
 
White lilies on the table
That I picked at dawn 
I'm a broken record
Playing the same old song
This town, these streets
They echo your name
Nothing's ever been quite the same
Since you left me here

[Pre-Chorus]

You picked me out
I was your diamond in the rough
Even when I tried my best 
It never was enough
You promised me a bed of roses
But I'm still picking thorns from my skin

[Chorus]

I miss you
In the dead of night 
You were my only light
I want you
Like a drug
I can't get rid of
But I don't
No, I don't
I don't need you anymore

[Verse 2]

White lilies in the vase 
By the windowsill
If you came back now
I'd tell you how I really feel
About the night I went too far
Regrets, they hurt like an invisible scar
I lost the one real thing I believed in

[Pre-Chorus]

You picked me out 
I was your diamond in the rough
Even when I tried my best
It never was enough
You promised me a bed of roses 
But I'm still picking thorns from my skin

[Chorus]

I miss you
In the dead of night 
You were my only light
I want you
Like a drug 
I can't get rid of
But I don't
No, I don't 
I don't need you anymore

[Bridge]

I never was your butterfly
I'll always be a moth
Forgiving and forgetting
All the times you were so wroth
I tell myself the same old lies
I sit and watch the days go by
While the flowers slowly decay
It took me four long years to realize...
You never truly loved me anyway


White lilies on the table
That I picked at dawn
I'm a broken record
Playing the same old... song

    This is such a beautiful; one that I really relate to. Thank you for writing it. If you'd like to check out one of my pieces, I'd love it if you would look at my songs 'gatekeeper' and 'butterfly sadness.'
