Lyrics

I'll do better than Flowers (Erin's Song)
Music and lyrics by Rob Oswin

A thousand ways to say sorry, that's what I need...
For the 20 years you've wondered, whatever happened to me?
I knew you'd ask the question. I knew you'd criticize.
You've never heard the answers, through your Father's eyes.

And your old enough to know, I've got a story to tell...
I let you go... how many years ago?
And yes, I know... I know your heart is broken,

So I'll do better than flowers. I will write you a song.
So once you believe in me, you can sing along.
I'll write the answers you've been struggling to find...
And we can take it... a step at a time

Your Mother told me about you, on a full November moon
Three weeks before I'd cut and run, my love was dead and we were done.
I knew nothing about you...
She said, "I'm keeping my baby, I only wanted you to know."
And I was young and so naive,
I bit my tongue and still I bleed cuz' I let go...

If your old enough to know, I've got a story to tell...
I let you go... how many years ago?
And yes, I know... I know your heart is broken,

So I'll do better than flowers, I will write you a song.
And once you've forgiven me, you can sing along.
I'll find the truth, line after line...
And we can take it... a step at a time.

I guess its time we face the fact,
There's no point in looking back,
Cuz' there's no photographs of you and me...
But little did you know, you were always on my mind.
That was half a life ago...
I have changed, I have grown...
(Please forgive me!)
Do you still need me?

Girl, we can take it...
Take it a step at a time
I'll do better than flowers...
