Lyrics

Baby sleeps in your arms
Filled with dreams of your charms
I can't move, I can't cry
I don't care if I die
Am I sad? Am I gay?
I don't know, I can't say
All I know is your smile
Stay with me for a while

Purple flowers have grown in your hair
Yellow sunbeams shine down everywhere
I am happy
I am lonely
I am dying for you

Memories haunting me
Haunting you, set me free
Who could know what is right
Stay with me for the night
You were young, and I was old
You were hot, and I was cold
Who could see tragedy
Hanging down over me

Purple flowers have grown in your hair
Yellow sunbeams shine down everywhere
I am happy
I am lonely
I am dying for you

Purple flowers have grown in your hair
Yellow sunbeams shine down everywhere
I am happy
I am lonely
I am dying for you
I am happy
I am lonely
I am dying for you
For you
