Elisa Inside a Flower Lyrics

Last updated: 10/27/2004 11:00:00 AM


Hold back the time...just let it hang...
stop the seconds, minutes, and hours
and if I give you love...
will you let me keep myself?

I'm sitting out here on the very edge of earth
looking through a book from long before the world began
the man who gave it to me didn't have a name
so overhead the sun is running down the day.

The books begins it's story,
it tells of war and hate and tells of power,
the promises of freedom,
and of all religions love and
ways of life and how to...

Close your time inside a flower
stop the seconds, minutes, hours,
close your time inside a flower
live your life forget the power.

The people passing by and they stop to look at me
they all think I'm crazy 'cause I'm laughing in the wind
but I'm free to be whatever I may choose
to win this freedom I know that somebody had to lose.

I've learned of those who buy love
read about those willing to sell it
when we're born it's for love
some of us would die
just to get it what you gotta do is...

Close your time inside a flower
stop the seconds, minutes, hours,
close your time inside a flower
live your life forget the power.

We can give our love away and never lose ourselves
but no one can be something that you own
and if you think you've got the
right to tell me what I am
I got no trouble leaving you alone.

Close your time inside a flower
stop the seconds, minutes, hours,
close your time inside a flower
live your life forget the power
