My last flower lies wilting in her vase
A single beam of starlight silhouettes her face
I leave in the night-time and tend to my task
Secret whisper tells of me all that she asks

Why does he walk so quietly down the corridor
Why does he silently unlatch the door
Who is the stranger in his body that sleeps next to me
What has become of him, what does he see?

Sunlight splash upon bedroom window pane
She turns and sees that I’m home once again
Good morning from her lips
But questions in her eyes
She’s looking into me, past all of my lies

Who is the stranger in you? Why have you gone away?
You’re not the same person that was in you yesterday
Not the one that I married, vase flowers are dead
Not the one that I knew, vase flowers are dead

Flowers bloom in a field where a house used to be
Vase flowers are dead and wild flowers, free
Nothing remains, no memory
Vase flowers are dead and wild flowers free
