Hospital Flowers

Album: All Things Bright & Beautiful (2011)
  • I survived a dreadful accident
    In the car crash of the century
    My shattered hopes collapsed on cold cement
    But in the back of the ambulance, I'd never felt so content

    A high-speed collision gave a new sense of sight to me
    And now my vision can render the scene
    A blurry image of wreckage and roadside debris
    Happiness returned to me through a grave emergency

    I tossed and turned in sterile apathy
    Until the violets arrived for me
    The bouquet burst and blossoms filled the room
    And the place got smaller as they grew taller
    And taught me to bloom

    A high-speed collision gave a new sense of sight to me
    And now my vision can render the scene
    A blurry image of wreckage and roadside debris
    Happiness returned to me through a grave emergency

    The curtains decayed, the daylight poured in
    I was never afraid of the darkness again
    My burns were third-degree, but I'd been set free
    'Cause grace had finally found its way to me

    A high-speed collision gave a new sense of sight to me
    And now my vision can render the scene
    A blurry image of wreckage and roadside debris
    Happiness returned to me
    Happiness returned to me
    Happiness returned to me through a grave emergency
    Through a grave emergency
    Happiness returned to me through a grave emergency Writer/s: Adam R. Young
