Magnolia Blue

 

I’ve got magnolias on my mind

They are the first to bloom in spring

But in the fall they’re first to die

Got petals in a star upon my arm

Bluer than your eyes but they’ve been

Fading every day since you’ve been gone

 

There’s pink, there’s white

There’s wrong and there’s right

There were purple, it’s true

But I went and chose you

We had it all

Oh, baby

When I couldn’t hold you

I could have told you

They’re the first ones to fade in the fall

 

Now I’m

Waiting for the clocks to change

And time

Is telling me to forget I ever knew your name

the lines 

Are growing paler round the flower that was you 

Magnolia Blue

 

There’s a magnolia in my heart

bluer than the sky but it’s been

Fading every day we’ve been apart 

 

There’s pink and there’s white

There’s day and there’s night

There were yellow ones too

But I went and chose blue

We had it all

Oh, babe

Put your head on my shoulder

I wanna hold you

So tight not a petal will fall

 

There’re signs 

Of winter folding up its wings

And time

Is telling me to forget I ever knew your name

And I’m

Waiting for my phone to ring

Hoping it’s you

Magnolia Blue

 

Who said April was the cruellest month of all?

They never saw magnolias in the fall

They never sat here waiting for your call

 

In the fall they’re first to die

But when the winter turns to spring

They’re the first to bloom and come alive, alive

Don’t you know 

I wanna hold you

Put your head on my shoulder

My sweet

Magnolia Blue
