lyrics

The usher should have told me
To avoid the saddest part
The villagers surrounded him
As he's clutching at his heart
He accidentally killed the girl
Begs forgiveness from the mob
It's sad for him, it's sad for me
It's sad for everyone involved

From a grave assembled, from mismatching parts
Not from a womb delivered, a revived rotting heart
Clearly a mistake's been made
Now he's walking through the yard
The girl has got him by the hand
I try to warn her from the dark

Come play, come play
With me by the lake
Come play, come play
Oh, it's not too late
Take a flower, take a flower
And see how it floats
Take a flower, take a flower
And see how it floats
See look, see look
There's my little boat
See look, see look
There's your little boat
Oh no, oh no
We're all out of boats
Oh no, oh no, oh no

I did all I could to warn them
I waved at the screen
The father carries her through town
Oh, it is a bad dream

He accidentally killed the girl
Begs forgiveness from the mob
But I'll keep coming back again
To see if it cannot be stopped

Don't play, don't play
With him by the lake
Don't play, don't play
Oh, it is too late
Don't take a flower, take a flower
And see how it floats
Don't take a flower, take a flower
And see how it floats
Don't look, don't look
At your little boat
Don't look, Don't look
At his little boat
Oh no, oh no
They're all out of boats
Oh no, oh no, oh no
