All of seventeen Eyes a purple green Treated like a Queen, she was On borrowed self esteem
She would do a dance A painful masquerade Spinning you into her web Along her vain parade
In her uniform Studded brass and steel Kissing lipstick, napkin stains And smearing sincerity
Along her vain parade Along her veins
Time crept up on her She's early gray Her reflection looks concerned As flowers hit her grave

Teri from CaI still have this cassette. One of the three I bought back in the beginning.
David from Mcalester, OkI think "Flower" is about a young girl who becomes a stripper. Lives a troubled, hard life(she was on borrowed self esteem/ she's early gray) . And dies an early death due too drug abuse (along her veins/as flowers hit her grave).
Tim from Somewhere In, GaI think this song is about a popular, wealthy stuck up prep school girl. The mention of "being treated like a queen" and "in her uniform" and other similar lyrics in the song make me interpret the song this way.
Florida Georgia Line's "Cruise" spent 24 weeks on top of the country chart- the most ever until Sam Hunt's "Body Like a Back Road" was #1 for 34 weeks. The record was previously held by Eddy Arnold's "I'll Hold You in My Heart (1947-48), Hank Snow's "I'm Moving On" (1950-51) and Webb Pierce's "In the Jailhouse Now" (1955), which each led for 21 weeks.
