lyrics

I planted sunflower seeds for the third year in a row
And once again it seems that
None of them will grow
Not a single one will grow
Not a single one
And why?
I just don't know

As we hung our clothes in the sun to dry
Out on the line that we hung last Thursday night
On the hottest day of the year
I think about those seeds
And I fear

That they were dug up in the middle of the night
Or maybe they didn't get enough light
Or enough water
There was that one weekend I left town to help my brother

Yeah that's probably it
Yeah that's probably it

I remember on the third floor near a stack of cassettes
I was asked by someone if I could settle a bet
And if she was right about the phrase nipped in the bud
I just laughed and said I'm pretty sure she was

And then I dug up in the middle of the night
A flashbulb memory of you in the garden
That was so bright
With a sunflower dress on
Nothing under
Dancing like a rain god to the sound of thunder
A sunflower dress on

And that's probably it
And that's probably it
And that's probably it
And that's probably it
