Tried picking petals off of daisies one by one
Collectively
‘cause they might as well know better than me
Well surprise, surprise
I took a second guess as every one said,
“Yes”
But little did they know how he really felt inside
Or else those pretty little flowers just
Really knew how to lie
To lie
To lie

If I sing you this song tonight
Will you recognize it’s for you?
As I’m singing this song tonight
Do you recognize it’s for you?

The sun was blazing through the velvet sky
Beneath I wondered why
He wasn’t there with me to pass the time
Well instead I had a couple flower friends
Beside me their old stems
Barren and sole
I’m just like one of them
On the ground wishing I could be
Full of life again
Again
Again

If I sing you this song tonight
Will you recognize it’s for you?
As I’m singing this song tonight
Do you recognize it’s for you?
And for what you’ve put me through.

Spent every day in the feverish
Heat of July
Seeking all the answers
Every bit of advice
A petal at a time
When I’d rather pay attention
To a summer sunburn
Than to think about you and just
How much it hurts
To try and make it work
Now.

If I sing you this song tonight
Will you recognize it’s for you?
As I’m singing this song tonight
Do you even recognize that it’s for you?
And for what you’ve put me through
What you’ve put me through
Just what you’ve put me through
What you’ve put me through.
