orchids lyrics – maria taylor

i won’t get mad
and i won’t break in two
’cause i understand you
i’ll take this change
and let my clothes soak with rain
as i study orchid blooms
and some can’t live unless they feed on fallen leaves
and so you’ll let me down to come alive when you comfort me

i’ve watched you change,
i’ve heard your words rearrange
way back from the start
and if i did teach you anything at all
i hope it was to love with all your heart
and they open wide with imperfect symmetry
and so you’ll love like you, and i will love like me

and to be reborn
they have to go to seed
so angel, you will have to set me free
