Lyrics

Lily, come follow me down
to a field full of flowers, to a field full of flowers
Lily, come follow me down
where the honeybees fly, where the honeybees fly

A crippled old Mustang
left in pieces in the garage
It was all that he left and then it was gone

Lily, come follow me down
to a velvet green lawn, to a velvet green lawn
Lily, come follow me down
where the leaves kiss the sun, where the leaves kiss the sun

The Cul-de-sac's quiet
Until a gunshot shatters the night
We put our lives in boxes
And we leave Courtney behind

Lily, come follow me down
to a garden turned brown, to a garden turned brown
Lily, come follow me down
where the pear trees are gold, where the pear trees are gold

The wind carries our prayers
passing flags over our doors
We welcome life's changes
New flags hung with the torn

Lily, come follow me down
to a blanket of snow, to a blanket of snow
Lily, come follow me down
where the cardinals sing on, where the cardinals sing on
