Trampled Rose (Waits Tom)

Long way going to Get my medicine Sky's the autumn grey of a lonely wren Piano from a window played Gone tomorrow, gone yesterday I found it in the street At first I did not see Lying at my feet A trampled rose Passing the hat in church It never stops going around You never pay just once To get the job done What I done to me, I done to you What happened to the trampled rose? In the muddy street With the fireworks and leaves A blind man with a cup I asked Would he sing 'Kisses Sweeter Than Wine' I know that rose, Like I know my name The one I gave my love, It was the same Now I find it in the street, A trampled rose
