Verse 1

And here I am, blaming myself once again,

For walking straight into the spider's web.

And here I am, questioning my own judgment,

I can't even tell the tide from the ebb.

Well, I made a mistake again, I let myself down one more time,

What's the price to pay? I'm still counting the pennies and the dimes.

Pre-chorus

But when your flames are turned into amber,

When I wake up from your nightmare, I hope I remember

Chorus

Sometimes beautiful flowers fall down onto the streets.

Sometimes they are crushed under the weight of a hundred feet,

And sometimes a stranger picks them, up and off the ground.

I could use help like that right now, need someone to turn it around.

Verse 2

Cause here I am, trapped by the walls that I built

To keep myself safe from your next attack.

Wish I'd never walked into your battlefield,

Wish I could rewind the time, take it back.

I was chasing the light from your willow-the-wisp, it disappeared.

Now I'm blinded by the darkness, but at least I'm standing here.

Pre-chorus

Now that your flames have turned into amber,

Now I've woken up from your nightmare, and yes, I remember,

Chorus

Sometimes beautiful flowers fall down onto the streets.

Sometimes they are crushed under the weight of a hundred feet,

And sometimes a stranger picks them, up and off the ground.

I could use help like that right now, need someone to turn it around.

Bridge

I'm ready to take flight,

But I could really use a light

So that I don't lose my way again,

Wander off into deserts of pain.

I forgive myself for the last time I did,

The last time when I was so stupid,

Because

Chorus

Sometimes beautiful flowers fall down onto the streets.

Sometimes they are crushed under the weight of a hundred feet,

And sometimes a stranger picks them, up and off the ground.

I could use help like that right now, need someone to turn it around.

Chorus

Sometimes beautiful flowers fall down onto the streets.

Sometimes they are crushed under the weight of a hundred feet,

And sometimes a stranger picks them, up and off the ground.

I could use help like that right now, need someone to turn it around.
