“This song cracks my heart wide open. Its lyrics, Tanya’s performance and that kind of honesty are rare in music these days,” shared Director Trey Fanjoy. “Tanya is an icon to be celebrated. And the connection between Tanya and Brandi is so strong and pure. That’s what I hope people come away with after watching the music video. And like the narrative concept in our piece, this is Tanya’s triumphant return to town. I wanted our video to visually reinforce this in a powerful way. We’ve all missed her voice.”

“Bring My Flowers Now” Lyrics

Bring my flowers now, while I’m livin’
I won’t need your love when I’m gone
Don’t spend time, tears, or money
On my ol’ breathless body
If your heart is in them flowers, bring ’em on

All the miles cast a long shadow
I’d take a couple back if I could
I’d’ve learned to play guitar
Told my daddy more I loved him
But I believe, for the most part, I done good

There’s always sunrise and rainbows and babies
And the little things I cherish on my way
Even though one day
They’ll bury me and Jessie Mae
I just know we’re gonna ride again someday

Bring my flowers now, while I’m livin’
I won’t need your love when I’m gone
Don’t spend time, tears, or money
On my ol’ breathless body
If your heart is in them flowers, bring ’em on

The days are long but the years are lightning
They’re bright and they will never strike again
I wish I’d been a better friend
A better daughter to my mother
There’s no goin’ back when your back’s against the wind

So if you got love, then you’re sittin’ on a gold mine
And you can’t take it with you when you go
So don’t wait to help your sister
Forgive your brother and your neighbor
We all think we got the time until we don’t

Bring my flowers now, while I’m livin’
I won’t need your love when I’m gone
Don’t spend time, tears, or money
On my ol’ breathless body
If your heart is in them flowers, bring ’em on
If your heart is in them flowers, bring ’em on
