Periwinkle

lyrics

We went down to the store
And got some new buttons
For your jacket
Say it ain't lovely

We found some cool pebbles
Down by the sea
You played a game of catch with
Them and with me

And then we rode around
In your dusty old car
Where the windows are brown

We went out to eat
Together together
Cause we don’t like
Fast food in this weather


Good old tulips
Grown from the ground
From where we had thrown them
And your mother had frowned

And then we rode off
In your dusty old car
Where the seats are all soft

I put sunflowers in your hair
You put periwinkles in mine
We loved the stars at midnight
And the moon was white as wine

Cause the grass is always greener
When I spend my time with you
And just to stay by your side
There’s nothing I wouldn’t do

We tried to go out shopping
But we’re way to poor
They wouldn’t even let us in
When we knocked on the door

I hate to break it to you
That I’m such a mess
I want you to be next to me
While I slowly undress

The sound of your voice
Playing in my ears
After you said
Let’s get away from here

And then we rode away
In your dusty old car
Where the paint’s faded grey
