lyrics

Flower (a very complex friend)
I’m never awkward she said (her petals disarranged)
I should have guessed, the affection behind her stratagems
It’s such a secret place, the land of tears
Let the tigers come with their claws

But flowers are weak and reassure themselves
I wouldn’t feel so bothered if she were armed herself
And I’m here on my own…
One flower is just unique and thorny in her way
And it’s fine to be happy, just to look at her star
In torment to her vanity

But flowers are weak and reassure themselves
I wouldn’t feel so bothered if she were armed herself
And I’m here on my own again…
I was too young to know how to love her
Or maybe I was cautious, and the fault was with her?
There’s only social difficulty
And no grown up will ever understand that this is so important and I held in my arms…
Someone that would just hold me back

If we went out, I’d only want to be
Always romantic with her, which isn’t what she needs
Or is she softer than she seems?
