lyrics

Just a little rose, just a little rose
In the sidewalk cracks of town
Looking for her little prince
In the people walking around

But he's nowhere to be found
Somewhere lost in the underground
He's trying to find his way back Home
To his garden, his flower, his rose

Just a little bird, just a yellow bird
Singing a morning song
Trying to wake up the holy king
Who's sleeping in Babylon

But the sultan he never sleeps
He just roams all the empty streets
Looking for his first-born son
With a limp, a cane, and a gun

I've seen the end of the only road
That lonely path where no one goes
I've seen sultans, kings, and queens
They fight for power between you and me

I've seen flowers grow out of weeds
I wish that you could be with me
I get along, I sing my songs
But they don't mean that much to me
Now that you're gone, I just carry on
I wander the streets
I get along
I try to carry on without you
