lyrics

You're a flower and I'm a tree, in the same garden with different leaves.
A beautiful flower so fragrent and mild, standing so vibrant. I was beguiled.
Just a tree with roots down so deep. Strong and steady but even willows can weep.
Now it seems to me we both have our faults.
How did I not see this would be the briefest waltz?
In the spring when we were in bloom I had my blossom you had your sweet perfume
But in came the autumn and I lost my leaves.
Your strength it withered as if taken by thieves
By the winter, with you almost gone, I may be empty but at least I stand strong.
In the garden, where I stand alone and wait for my flower when she is regrown.
