  • Wallflowers.

    He's a bachelor button-ed
    in a bar room's back booth
    sipping several pain killers
    mixed with vermouth,

    Just a Jack-In-A-Pulpit
    with no women to reach,
    cause love is a skill
    that he's yet learned to teach.

    She's life's Black-Eyed Susan,
    far too often abused,
    an ex-wife grown Mum,
    from times she'd been used.

    A rose not yet blossomed
    still seeking a bud,
    whose Ex- gave new meaning
    to the title bad blood.

    Chorus-

    Two wallflowers stuck
    in their solitary vases,
    always going home lonely,
    but still haunting those places,
    where wallflowers often
    find roots and become,
    a bouquet of two in
    the arms of someone......
    Two lonely wallflowers.

    He'd noticed her sitting
    all alone as he gazed,
    around a bar that held little
    of the love that he craved,

    he could see she'd been wounded,
    so he sent her a drink
    with a note as a chaser...
    to a gal on the brink.

    That note simply said,
    "I'm as lonely as you,
    but the gentleman in me
    doesn't want to intrude,
    still I'm hoping that we,
    could just talk for a while,
    share an hour or two
    with some drinks
    and some smiles."

    Chorus-

    Two wallflowers stuck
    in their solitary vases,
    always going home lonely,
    but still haunting those places,
    where wallflowers often
    find roots and become,
    a bouquet of two
    in the arms of someone......
    two lonely wallflowers


    Much later that night
    in a booth shared by two,
    her faith in mankind
    once again was renewed,

    by his gentle approach
    and his need to just talk,
    as two souls both took flight
    from their long weary walks.

    Chorus-

    Two wallflowers freed
    from their solitary vases,
    still going home alone,
    but with smiles on their faces,
    knowing wallflowers too
    can find roots and become,
    a bouquet of two
    in the arms of someone.......
    two loving wallflowers
    ....two loving wallflowers
