flowers in the mud lyrics – golden earring

flowers in the mud

farewell el paso, h*llo future
welcome seven dilatee
i drink tequila, you drink espresso

lovers we were meant to be
walkin’ like an angel
talkin’ like the angel

life’s like mercury, slippin’ through your
lazy fingers tappin’ beat
and your pistol sleeps in the holster

far from harm and causing grief
walkin’ like an angel
talkin’ like the angel

am i running? am i calm?
like an outlaw without cause
i’ve been runnin’ invisible
catchin’ breath for alibi

and this dream keeps on repeatin’
grab my pocket socks
love is like a flower in the mud

i’m here in the wild west wingo
you take a chance, maybe lose a bet
but when your heart says that it’s bingo

lover you were meant to be
walkin’ like an angel
talkin’ like the angel

am i running? am i calm?
like an outlaw without cause
i’ve been runnin’ invisible
catchin’ breath for alibi

and this dream keeps on repeatin’
grab my pocket socks
love is like a flower in the mud

like a flower
like a flower
like a flower in the mud

like a flower
like a flower
like a flower in the mud

like a flower
like a flower
like a flower in the mud

like a flower
like a flower
like a flower
like a flower
like a flower
like a flower
like a flower in the mud
