The flowers in spring are such a beautiful thing, coming up through the thawing ground.
It’s been such a long lonely winter, and I’m living in the here and now.
It’s still snowy on the outside, it’s still frosty on the ground,
I’m still waiting for the sunshine, and the flowering to come around.
It’s still snowy here in my life, and I still feel so all alone,
I need so much to have someone love me. Someone that I can hold.
I’m lacking in patience when it comes to love. Don’t seem to want to give it time to grow.
But I know if I try to peel open the bud, the flower I’ll never know.
I don’t know how to tell you, I think I see forever in your eyes.
I don’t know how to hold you, I don’t know if I should try.
