Sentimental gestures never meant that much to me
But if I had her here today
I'd shed a tear for all the world to see

CHORUS
Cut flowers sent to a girl with sentimental ways
Cut flowers meant more to her on ordinary days

A gentle girl who needed all the love I had to give
But I was blind to her and would not give
What she needed most to live

CHORUS

Cut flowers pressed between the pages of a book she gave
I go to her and say, "I'm sorry,"
Then I put cut flowers on her grave

CHORUS
