  • "this dream never ends" you said
    "this feel never goes
    The time will never come to slip away"
    "this wave never breaks" you said
    "this sun never sets again
    These flowers will never fade"
    "this world never stops" you said
    "this wonder never leaves
    The time will never come to say goodbye"
    "this tide never turns" you said
    "this night never falls again
    These flowers will never die"

    Never die
    Never die
    These flowers will never die

    "this dream always ends" I said
    "this feeling always goes
    The time always comes to slip away"
    "this wave always breaks" I said
    "this sun always sets again
    And these flowers will always fade"
    "this world always stops" I said
    "this wonder always leaves
    The time always comes to say goodbye"
    "this tide always turns" I said
    "this night always falls again
    And these flowers will always die"

    Always die
    Always die
    These flowers will always die

    Between you and me
    It's hard to ever really know
    Who to trust
    How to think
    What to believe
    Between me and you
    It's hard to ever really know
    Who to choose
    How to feel
    What to do

    Never fade
    Never die
    You give me flowers of love

    Always fade
    Always die

  • Eriquito from Orlando, FlYou are all wrong, this song has to do with Robert's alcoholism and how bloodstains ended up on his toilet paper...
  • Chuck from Nanaimo, Bcthis is what i get out of it one half is his wife and how she sees life and the other half is him
    a bloodflower is life and soul
    he has no faith and the soul will die (tide always turns ect)
    but she says it will never die the love and soul will never end so ther for she gives him flowers of blood
  • Ziggy Hendrix from Lindenhurst , Ilthis song seems to be about a cynical guy who falls in love with an upbeat girl.
  • Trav from None Of Your Business, CaYour right, Trav. Half the song is ment to be a chirade of innocence whilst the other is about the sad end of that innocence.
  • Trav from San Carlos, AlHalf of the song is a almost childish persona who believes that all good times will last, while the other half is a mockery of the first half. at the end it says how you must choose which one to live by.
