inside a flower lyrics – elisa

inside a flower

hold back the time
just let it hang
stop the seconds, minutes and hours
and if i give you love
will you let me keep myself

i’m sitting out here on the very edge of earth
looking through a book from long before the world began
the man who gave it to me didn’t have a name
and overhead the sun is running down the day

the book begins its story
tells of war and hate and tells of power
the promises of freedom
and of all religions, love and ways of life
and how to

close your time inside a flower
stop the seconds, minutes and hours
close your time inside a flower
live your life forget the power

the people p*ssing by they stop to look at me
they all think i’m crazy ‘cause i’m laughing in the wind
but i am free to be whatever i may choose
to win this freedom i know that somebody had to lose

i’ve learned to those who buy love
and read about those willing to sell it
when we’re born it’s for love
some of us will die just you get it
what you gotta do is

close your time inside a flower
stop the seconds, minutes and hours
close your time inside a flower
live your life forget the power

we can give our love away and never lose ourselves
but no one can be something that you own
and if you think you’ve got the right to tell me what i am
i’ve got no trouble leaving you alone…

close your time inside a flower
stop the seconds, minutes and hours
close your time inside a flower
live your life forget the power
