about

the slow sweet sound of a white flower petal falling through all of time

From "Roses Guide To Time Travel" CD

lyrics

Sweet Honey

Watching for a sign
To set me free or draw me near
Watching for a sign tonight
Like a hummingbird near a flower
You hover then you fly
Like a hummingbird near a flower
Sweet honey

The honeycomb holds the nectar
The bees protect their own
The honeycomb holds the nectar so bright
The hummingbird has to drink
A thousand times or die
A hummingbird has to drink
Sweet honey

The petals fall from the flower
Slowly one by one
The petals fall from the flower pure white
The candle's flame is burning lower
Fading amber light
Melted wax spills over like
Sweet honey
