The worst that I've ever been hurt in my life
The first time I ever wanted to die
Was the night when you told me you loved someone new
And asked me if I could forget

I'd be like a flower unwanted in spring
Alone and neglected transplanted in vain
To a garden of sadness where it's pedals will fall
In the shadow of undying pain

You can teach the flowers to bloom in the snow
You may take a pebble and teach it to grow
You can teach all the raindrops to return to the clouds
But you can't teach my heart to forget
