  • If I could divide the smell of flowers
    I'd send some to the falsely charged
    Locked in prison cells
    Send some to the lonely seniors
    Trapped in apartment hells
    Send some to the weary miners
    Sweating beneath the ground
    Send some to the invisible people
    Hauling our garbage round

    Some answers in life are so easy
    Like zero plus zero is none
    But how do we divide the smell of flowers
    So their fragrance is shared by everyone?

    Everywhere

    If I could divide the smell of flowers
    I'd pass some to the frightened animals
    Caged against their wills
    Pass some to the dying birds
    Choking on oil spills
    Pass some to the angry kids
    Sniffing up airplane glue
    Pass some to the crying widow
    Missing the love she knew

    Some answers in life are so easy
    Like zero plus zero is none
    But how do we divide the smell of flowers
    So their fragrance is shared by everyone?

    If I could divide the smell of flowers
    Then you'd always have your share
    If I could divide the smell of flowers
    There'd be sweetness around you
