Mel Green: Songs & Lyrics

Old Flowers Die

(Mel Green, ©2010 MelGreen Publishing. BMI)
July 1, 2017
The place:
North Beach, Durban, South Africa.
A young couple is breaking up,
They're observed by a wiser, older man resting at the road side,
waiting to offer rides to tourists on his rickshaw.  
A
friend of the boy speeds the outcome by giving his "advice".

Me oh my
Girls sway by

There’s a pinking sky

Seagulls cry


Chorus:

Old flowers die

Old lovers sigh

A cold love you can’t deny

Its so hard to say goodbye-bye


The girl just cries

The boy shrugs and sighs

Her heart aches inside

He just wants to say goodbye


Chorus:

Old flowers die

Old lovers sigh

A cold love you can’t deny

Its so hard to say goodbye-bye


He’s got his friend's advice

About girls, love and life

His friend says hold your head up high boy

It’s not easy to say goodbye-bye

 

Chorus:

Old flowers die

Old lovers sigh

A cold love you can’t deny

Its so hard to say goodbye-bye-bye-bye
 

Bye-bye-bye

Bye-bye-bye

Bye-bye-bye
