Amerie - The Flowers Lyrics




Now its just a memory,
And its hard to think (hard to think about it)
Bout the love I left behind
I cant help but think (what could I have done about it)
But deep inside I know its your fault that Im not there
Once you put aside your pride, I know that you saw it so clearly
That your nearly losing your mind
Tryna rewind
Do what you did and didnt do
So Im telling you...
You should have did so much more to show you loved me

Im wishing
I wish you would have gave me The Flowers (when I could smell them)
And Im wishing
I wish you would have held me for hours (when I was around)
Now theres nothing you can do...
But to wish I was with you...
But its too little too late, to late to late
Press rewind (to go back in time)
So theres nothing you can do...
Cause Im no longer missing you...
You should have gave me The Flowers (when I could smell them)
Cause now Im gone

And baby its so hard to believe ya when you say that you promise your be better
Cause everything your saying right now, you can saying forever
You should of showed you loved me, You should have spent more time
You should have been the answers to the questions in my mind
But your here aint going no where youll never let me go
(you'll never let me go)
Cause baby, I couldnt feel your love was real, you took for granted what we had
So Im telling you...
You should of did so much more to show you loved me

Im wishing
I wish you would have gave me The Flowers (when I could smell them)
And Im wishing
I wish you would have held me for hours (when I was around)
Now theres nothing you can do...
But to wish I was with you...
But its too little too late, to late to late
Press rewind (to go back in time)
So theres nothing you can do...
Cause Im no longer missing you...
You should have gave me The Flowers (when I could smell them)
Cause now Im gone

And it hurts so much inside for me to let you go (let you go yea)
But it hurts me so much more to stay with you and I know that
You can explain how much you changed
But it remains the same
Its just to late for us... (its just to late for us)
Theres no way to get back
All the love that we had......
But I still cant help but wish that.....

Im wishing
I wish you would have gave me The Flowers (when I could smell them)
And Im wishing
I wish you would have held me for hours (when I was around)
Now theres nothing you can do (and theres nothing you can do about it)
But to wish I was with you (but to think about it)
But its too little too late, to late to late
Press rewind (to go back in time)
So theres nothing you can do...(No)
Cause Im no longer missing you...
You should have gave me The Flowers (when I could smell them)
(Hey Hey Hey Hey)

Im wishing
I wish you would have gave me The Flowers (when I could smell them)
And Im wishing
I wish you would have held me for hours (when I was around)
Now theres nothing you can do... (Nothing You Can Do)
But to wish I was with you... (But To Wish I Was With You)
But its too little too late, to late to late
Press rewind (to go back in time) (Said Its To Late)
So theres nothing you can do...
Cause Im no longer missing you...
You should have gave me The Flowers (when I could smell them)
MhmmmmmnnOhhhh
Cause Now Im Gone!!!

  26. T R York

    She is EVERY THING! so underrated for sure

    Dynetta Washington

    Underated for sure.

  27. Jonathan Akerele

    This song has wonderful piano rhythm and very powerful vocals from Amerie but its also a very tragic and sad song as the lyrics tell a story of regret and missed opportunity. A guy failed to show his appreciation for a girl then the girl leaves and now the guy is kicking himself for taking her for granted. In some ways it's very similar to the Michael Jackson song "She's Out of My Life" which dealt with the same thing. =(

    Jonathan Akerele

    The sad problem I think is both her record labels (Columbia and Island Def Jam) failed to promote her music properly and didn't create enough buzz for her music outside of the D.C. area where she is based. The capitalist nature of the industry also hurts because it all becomes about record sales and less about appreciating the raw vocal, emotional, and creative talent it takes to write and sing songs that "speak" to listeners as opposed to just growing their brand as a cash cow for the label.

    Shanice-Rochelle .J

    so sad. i think she should start a reality show and show it on tv and stuff like that. people like that stuff. i am in the uk and all my friends watch the Kardashians, Shanice and Flex, Love and hip hop etc.. she should show her face. she is a beauty, she should do a clothing range for H&M, show herself on TV or someting similar. do a blog... so many ideas, start a music school and promote herself at the same time. what do you think??

    Jonathan Akerele

    You dropped so many great ideas there. I agree. She should find non-traditional ways to promote herself to get her music on the air because she is so talented and it upsets me how Columbia shafted her in favor of other artists on their label. I guess someone up top at C.R. didn't see her as commercially viable which is a real shame.

    Shanice-Rochelle .J

    Jonathan Akerele
    yeah man.

    Johnson Johnson

    Jonathan Akerele I agree. They promoted Beyoncé more instead of her. I love this girl and I believe she is just as talented if not more than her peers. I wish she was a bigger star. She is such a beautiful person inside as I had the opportunity to meet her one time before!

  28. Beautifulstar24

    Thank you so much for posting this song. I have been searching for this song. I really love this song, it speaks to me on so many levels.

  29. 1974cfjl

    My favorite song on the Amerie's 'In love and war' Album

    TweetsyCk

    1974cfjl ditto

    Johnson Johnson

    Awe man mine too. I have to pull this out and bump it in the truck.

  30. Nigel Chikukwa

    the piano melody in this song is e-vah-rah-thang

  31. Denise Rosario

    WOW ! that last line was everything.. thanks for that

  32. Christian McGee

    shit is smooth

  33. Gingerbaby67

    I went to bed listening to Directtv radio...silk soul I think - this song woke me up out of my deep sleep. Powerful song and my heart hurts just listening to it. Been there - there now. No one every tells you that finding the love of your life doesn't mean they've found there's too.

  34. MsGetFit Curve-ologist

    Amerie ROCKS! Love this song! :-)

  35. Youssef El Moukh

    Very under rated artist, such a beautiful voice.

  36. LORONSPORT

    it still hurts!!!! after all these yrs!!!! ughhhhhhhh hit this one on the nail bby!!!!!!

  37. Forgotten Streets

    its all about the right promotion and willingness to follow what the industry has instore for you...this isnt a new concept its been like this since the earliest days of the music industry...its not about talent...there are thousands of talented artists signed to major labels..but noone hears about them or just get rare exposure like amerie and keyshia cole for example...those 2 can sing circles around some mainstream artists..but its all about how they work you

  38. maya nicole

    Song is so creative & amazing! <3

  39. MimiLovesMJ

    UNDERRATED BETTER THAN BEYONCE AND ALL THESE FAKE BITCHES !!!!

  40. Dun Wolf

    everytime i think i heard a great song from Amerie she suprises me. This artist is the most underrated artist in the bussiness now. I love her voice, style and she's so damn cute.

  41. trezz18

  46. videolover61

    Come on, grow up...

  47. Lonelyeco

    The piano reminds me of Reminiscence from The Legend of Dragoon.

  48. Redalert70

    I love this song, and she has made some great music over the years. Definitely a great music artist.

  49. neelante

    @ENYPolyglot Indeed to me shes much better than beyonce but she never get her dues due to the Female market.

  50. ENY Polyglot

    @neelante I don't know how I missed this! Ah, Grad school............. It is pretty, typical of our songstress.

  51. Tajeznah

    @chx3hdr - sorry for such a late high five to your statement. They keep trying to drop first singles like "1Thing" and people already expect that from Amerie. If they'd have had the courage to release this track, it could've been a hit for her. I mean why didn't they go ahead and roll the dice since the label did jack boo nada to promote her or the album anyway?

  52. Leo Leito

    OMG She's a godness I love so so so much this song !!

  53. shine0911

    Yea, I'm a fan.

  54. Kandi

  59. Melvin D.

    ii Lovee my fellow capricorn ...this song speaks truth

  60. xANOTHERFAN

    my favourite <3

  61. Kiara Rose

    wow this is a beautiful song, especially if u can relate to every single verse, lovely song.

  62. chx3hdr

    You got it wrong. I love Amerie ever since. I believe if she had released this song as a single it would have been much more popular than the other songs on the cd. Actually . . I cannot even remember the names of the other songs released as videos from this cd, however I can guarantee if this one was released with a good video to go with it. She would have heavy rotation everywhere. Case and point - Melanie Fiona - "It kills me".

  63. chx3hdr

    Why why !. . . didn't they release this as a video or single? . . I don't understand why artists release the shittiest songs on the cd's and wonder why they do not get proper sales.

  64. Ciara R.

    i love this song, its so sweet & slow x3 , tha words mean alot.

  65. sugarnutter

    Damn this is a tune.

    <3 AMERIE, true fan!

  66. ShantenikS

    Love This Song...!

  67. neelante
