lyrics

Lily-Rose, she came from the mountains
But she yearned for the sea
Crowns of flowers in her hair
Lily-Rose was waiting for me

Lily-Rose, first of her name
A name that matched her dowry
Never wanted a ring
But Lily-Rose was promised to me

Oh but the flowers they cannot last through winter
They'll turn to dust

Oh Lily-Rose
Why can’t I make you want me?
Oh Lily-Rose
They say you've up and left me and run away

Lily-Rose, fairer than any
A voice that sounded like spring
And when I dream, I hear her calling
Lily-Rose, please come back to me

Oh but the flowers they cannot last through winter
They'll turn to dust

Oh Lily-Rose
Why can’t I make you want me?
Oh Lily-Rose
They say you've up and left me and run away

Oh but the flowers they can grow wild and free
But come winter you cannot make them stay

Oh Lily-Rose
Why can’t I make you want me?
Oh Lily-Rose
They say you've up and left me
Oh Lily-Rose
I cannot make you want me
Oh Lily-Rose
I know you’ve up and left me and run away

Lily-Rose she came from the mountains
But she yearned for the sea
Crowns of flowers in her hair
Lily-Rose never belonged to me
