Oh, cure me sweet lenten rose
Cure the madness and the hole
in my heart, in my head, in my mind.
Set me free, cut the ropes, break the bind.

I left it in the house down by the shore.
Promised I wouldn't go down there no more.
Come with me, baby please, I wanna go.
I wanna leave with all this sadness in my soul.

And I told you I was honest
but you can't believe in me.
I told you I was guarded
I still gave you the key.
In this dream I'm walking
to the center of the sea,
and slowly I realize
the madness sets me free.

Looking back and turning right around
do I keep this new life I have found?
The reasons come, the reasons go, the reasons fly,
and summer's all I have left of old times.

I found my meaning in a daffodil.
Poisoned seeds of hope is what I spill
on your heart, in your soul, and in your mind.
It's in mine too, you're not alone, look inside.

And I told you I was honest
but you can't believe in me.
I told you I was guarded
I still gave you the key.
In this dream I'm walking
to the center of the sea,
and slowly I realize
the madness sets me free.
