Flowers Never Bend With The Rainfall, Paul Simon 1965

edited February 2023 in Covers

Flowers Never Bend With The Rainfall, written by Paul Simon and released in 1965.

Life does not last forever, and will eventually be worn down and wilt, just like flowers in the rainfall.

Cherish life, and provide nourishment, while consistently weeding around diligently, and keeping the relationship between family and friends strong and alive!!!

Peace and Love!!!

Through the corridors of sleep

Past shadows dark and deep

My mind dances and leaps in confusion

I don't know what is real

I can't touch what I feel

And I hide behind the shield of my illusion

So I'll continue to continue to pretend

My life will never end

And flowers never bend

With the rainfall

The mirror on my wall

Casts an image dark and small

But I'm not sure at all it's my reflection

I am blinded by the light

Of God and truth and right

And I wander in the night without direction

No matter if you're born

To play the King or pawn

For the line is thinly drawn 'tween joy and sorrow

So my fantasy

Becomes reality

And I must be what I must be and face tomorrow

Feedback is much appreciated. Thank you!!!
