Towers

you used to be a field of cosmo flowers
growing waist high
I would lie down at your feet for hours
holding on tight

now all the powers that you fade to
all the lovers that you gave to
oh the flowers could still pale to you

you used to be a bed of silk and roses
warming the night
I would lie awake so uncertain
falling behind

now all the powers that you fade to
all the lovers that you gave to
oh the flowers could still pale to you

you used to be aware of fallen angels
every fall
we would pick them up at different stages
and they were beautiful
and you were beautiful
now all the powers that you fade to
all the lovers that you gave to
oh the flowers could still pale to you
all the towers that I made you
all went under - it never fazed you
all the wonder that I held for you
