Long-Stemmed Flower
 
Lyrics
I will pick a long-stemmed flower
Place it in your fingers
Cut from growing
Something glowing lingers

I will hold a long-stemmed flower
Shielded like a candle
A lighted handle
Drawing us together

Just a moment we can meet here
In this sudden meadow
Green and gold all unfold
Ahead of any shadow

Color gone out
Fragrance drawn out
With dawn's first fresh breeze
Do we both go home this hour?
I can�t see
Can anybody see?

But we each hold a long-stemmed flower
Petals full to bursting
Reaching up for light
And down for thirsting

I still hold a long-stemmed flower
Day grown bright and warm
When I hold a long-stemmed flower
I hold you in my arms
