lyrics

Shine, shine, shine
Melting into one mind
For this I’ve prayed
Hip hip hooray

What can I say?
I did the best I could
I moved to Hollywood and died

One by one
Wilting in the sun
From red to brown
They all fall down

What can I say?
I did the best I could
I moved to Hollywood and died

The bloom is off the rose

It moves me to tears
They’ve been perfecting it for years
I read you and weep
Then scuttle off to sleep
