Flowers Never Bend With The Rainfall

ŠPaul Simon, released on The Paul Simon Songbook, 1965

.

Through the corridors of sleep

Past the shadows dark and deep

My mind dances and leaps in confusion.

I don't know what is real,

I can't touch what I feel

And I hide behind the shield of my illusion.

.

So I'll continue to continue to pretend

My life will never end,

And flowers never bend

With the rainfall.

.

The mirror on my wall

Casts an image dark and small

But I'm not sure at all it's my reflection.

I am blinded by the light

Of God and truth and right

And I wander in the night without direction.

.

So I'll continue to continue to pretend

My life will never end,

And flowers never bend

With the rainfall.

.

It's no matter if you're born

To play the King or pawn

For the line is thinly drawn 'tween joy and sorrow,

So my fantasy

Becomes reality,

And I must be what I must be and face tomorrow.

.

So I'll continue to continue to pretend

My life will never end,

And flowers never bend

With the rainfall.
