Flowers Burn to Gold

Lyrics by Tori Amos

Where are you?
I scan the skies
Voices in the breeze
I scan the sea

Someone said they thought they saw you there
Through a cloud in the Midwest
Then I thought, could it be you?
By the way you were described
"She had the kindest eyes"

Where? Where? Where?
Where? Where? Where?

You told me once
Gardens, yes, they know
Death is not the end and
Flowers burn to gold

Someone said that they saw you there (saw you there)
On a cliff in the Southwest
Then I thought it might be you
By the way you were described
"She had the kindest eyes"

Where? Where? Where?
Where? Where? Where?

Someone prayed you were there for them (once again)
Like a miracle, miracle angel
Now I think it might be true
By the way you were described
"She had the kindest eyes"

Now I know all of it's true
By the way you were described
"She has the kindest eyes"
