Early on in FAWM I had found a set of lyrics I was hoping to put music to, but nothing ever really came to me. Finally, the writer asked if I’d still consider it, and so I sat down and came up with something. I hated it. I sent it over saying as much and he took it and created something entirely different. However, he still wanted me to do the vocals. So, I worked with a rough line he had recorded and created a more streamlined melody for him and recorded it. I think it turned out nicely.

Here are the lyrics he wrote:

Intro

Verse:

Wooden wheels on cobblestones echo through the fog

Clatter by forgotten churchyards, stopping on the boulevard

As she opens up her pushcart, puts away the keys

Fragrance of enchanted blossoms rises in the breeze

Chorus:

“Flowers”, she cries, “Flowers

Roses win your true loves heart

Shooting Stars to light your day

Lilacs will send worries….. on their way

Magic in my bouquets

Verse 2:

From Amaranth to Iris, Marigold to Violets Blue

Flowers dressed in Maidenhair, …. sparkle in a silver dew

All throughout the day she tends them, shaping her displays

Greets the lovers and the sinners, helping each select bouquets

Chorus:

“Flowers”, she cries, “Flowers

Roses win your true loves heart

Shooting Stars to light your day

Lilacs will send worries….. on their way

Magic in my bouquets

Bridge:

Flowers for the unforgiven

Flowers for the lost and found

Flowers burning with your passion

Flowers quiet, …..flowers loud

Flowers to forget your troubles

Flowers for the dark of night

Flowers for the sad and lonely

Flowers ready to delight

Verse:

Shadows gather to surround her as she packs up for the day

Leaning on her squeaking trolley, pushes past the closed cafes

When she turns into a alley ….. Disappears from the arcade

Just her aching song and fragrance, linger, and then fade

Instr…outro

I never got his full name, but here is his Reverbnation Site.
