about

Gathering flowers as an act of nature worship. To mark the death of the old and the birth of the new. To get high and feel good. And as a token of our love.

lyrics

Gathering Flowers

I’m gathering flowers to help me get by
One more for the river, one more for the sky
I’m gathering flowers to help me get high
You’d better believe that it keeps me alive
I’m gathering flowers for the one
Worshipping flowers under the Sun
I’m gathering up in a state of joy
Gathering flowers for a girl and a boy

I’m gathering flowers, and I’ll tell you why
I do it to cherish the ones who have died
I’m gathering flowers, wrong or right
See how the flower catches the light
I’m gathering flowers, up at the dawn
Gathering flowers out on the lawn
I'm gathering flowers for the ones who are born
And for the ones whose hearts get torn

I’m gathering flowers
I’m gathering flowers
I’m gathering flowers
I’m gathering flowers

I’m gathering flowers to help me get by
One more for the river, one more for the sky
I’m gathering flowers to help me get high
You’d better believe that it keeps me alive
I’m gathering flowers for the one
Worshipping flowers under the Sun
I’m gathering up in a state of joy
Gathering flowers for a girl and a boy

I’m gathering flowers
I’m gathering flowers
I’m gathering flowers
I’m gathering flowers

I’m gathering flowers for the grave
Sprinkle them on the mistakes we made
I'm gathering flowers for the feast
Gathering West and gathering East
I’m gathering flowers, for you my dear
Gathering flowers to draw you near
Gathering flowers for our love
Gathering for the Lord above

I’m gathering flowers
I’m gathering flowers
I’m gathering flowers
I’m gathering flowers
