Remember to buy yourself flowers

Remember to buy yourself flowers

And to smile at the things you don’t know

It’s only children that own super powers

And we gain ours helping them grow

Know that love is a blade that can cut you

But it’s hate that will poison your blood

And with time all your truths will come untrue

There are things you don’t know, but you could

And the voice in your head that keeps talking

Try to tell it to always be kind

The most dangerous place to be walking

Are the mountains inside your own mind

Visit graveyards but never chase ghosts

Let the dead be at peace and chase love

Things took for granted - are what we’ll miss most

And we’ll find them below and above 

So - remember to buy yourself flowers

And to smile at the things you don’t know

Because we’re measured in days, weeks and hours

We don’t stay here for long then we go X
