Lyrics: Ed Sheeran.

Supermarket Flowers.

I took the supermarket flowers from the windowsill.
I threw the day old tea from the cup.
Packed up the photo album Matthew had made,
Memories of a life that’s been loved.
Took the get well soon cards and stuffed animals.
Poured the old ginger beer down the sink.
Dad always told me, “Don’t you cry when you’re down”.
But mum, there’s a tear every time that I blink,
Oh I’m in pieces, it’s tearing me up, but I know,
A heart that’s broke is a heart that’s been loved,
So I’ll sing Hallelujah.

Chorus
You were an angel in the shape of my mum.
When I fell down you’d be there holding me up.
Spread your wings as you go,
And when God takes you back we’ll say Hallelujah,
You’re home.

Fluffed the pillows, made the beds, stacked the chairs up.
Folded your nightgowns neatly in a case.
John says he’d drive, then put his hand on my cheek,
And wiped a tear from the side of my face.
I hope that I see the world as you did ’cause I know,
A life with love is a life that’s been lived,
So I’ll sing Hallelujah.

Repeat Chorus

You were an angel in the shape of my mum.
You got to see the person I have become.
Spread your wings and I know,
That when God took you back he said Hallelujah,
You’re home.

END.
