Flowers Lyrics

by Ian Hunter

danger lurks in every alleyway
the top two percent out of touch
no one learns from the lessons of history
sometimes flowers aint enough

they fill your heart with ancient mystery
and no one knows who to trust
its too late when you discover that
sometimes flowers aint enough

give it up (give it up)
give it up (give it up)
give it up (give it up)
why dont you give it up
sometimes flowers aint enough

hunger, anger, propaganda
aint it time we all grew up
and we all got dreams but nobodys listening
sometimes flowers aint enough

give it up (give it up)
give it up (give it up)
give it up (give it up)
why dont you give it up
sometimes flowers aint enough

death, starvation, exploitation
helpless, homeless, furious
mass confusion, disillusion
sometimes flowers aint enough

I cant see God, the trees are in the way
I cant see hope, cant find love
every man killed is an insult to any faith
sometimes flowers aint enough

give it up (give it up)
give it up (give it up)
give it up (give it up)
why dont you give it up
sometimes flowers aint enough

give it up (give it up)
give it up (give it up)
give it up (give it up)
why dont you give it up
sometimes flowers aint enough

we all sing Thanks for the memories
sometimes flowers aint enough
