"Some Flowers Bloom Dead" as written by and Jakob Dylan....
We didn't make it
We did not pull through
You shouldn't blame me
I don't blame you
Now what else did you think
That I would do?
Ooooh as if it wasn't hard enough

I'm so tired of waking up
Feeling bad
You haven't been the kind of place I have
Could it hurt you now
To let this pass?
Oooooh as if it wasn't hard enough
You want to make it so much harder

Now in another world
I could learn to forget
But 'til then I'm here
Making room for new regrets
Now some flowers they never bloom
And some flowers just bloom dead

The way you make me feel
I could collapse
An epidemic I cannot outlast
How could you feel used
When I feel trapped?
Ooooh as if it wasn't hard enough

And just as my conscience
Starts to clear
I drag the river and you're still there
The way I bring you down
Could not compare
Ooooh as if it wasn't hard enough
You want to make it so much harder

Now in another world
I could learn to forget
But 'til then I'm here
Making room for new regrets
Now some flowers they never bloom
But some flowers just bloom dead
Now some flowers they never bloom
And some flowers just bloom dead

The way I sleep
This bed just can't be made
I pull the covers up around my head
Now when I think of me
I think of somebody else instead
As if it wasn't hard enough
You're gonna make it so much harder

Now in another world
I could learn to forget
But 'til then I'm here
Making room for new regrets
Now some flowers they never bloom
And some flowers just bloom dead
Now some flowers they never bloom
And some flowers they just bloom dead

    General CommentNow some flowers they never bloom /And some flowers just bloom dead. man i love that line. too think that a flower or their love would just end up dead right from the start is pretty depressing.

    General CommentYou want to make it so much harder
    Now in another world
    I could learn to forget
    But 'til then I'm here
    making room for new regrets
    Now some flowers they never bloom
    And some flowers just bloom dead

    That's a great chorus. I love it.

    General CommentListening to this song makes me wonder why the Wallflowers aren't more successful they are total genius. Probably because it's Bob Dylan's kid. And this song is not a traditional break-up song. The Wallflowers destroy anything conventional to me.

    General CommentThis song was really the only one that I liked off of 'Breach.' It's really pretty, though. I was a bit shocked by it when I first heard it for some reason... but, yeah, it's a nice song.

    To me this means that his bed was made for 2. This song is about a relationship that never "bloomed" but looking back on it he realized that it was never meant to be from the start.

    General CommentThe verses in this song are so ingeniously written. It all feels so real when I think back to the aftermath of failed relationships. As has been said above, this is the archetypal breakup song.

    General CommentSome Flowers Bloom Dead is brilliant in so many ways, a crown jewel of a great album.

    Breach gets bashed a lot, but I really feel that it was a trulygreat work.

    In Hand Me Down, Jakob finally writes about his father.
    Sleepwalker is possibly my favorite Wallflowers song of all.
    I've Been Delivered is also very well written. Great song about a touchy subject.
    The album closes with the transition from the angst of Murder 101 to the calming, sentimental Birdcage/Babybird.

    I think Breach is sickeningly underrated

    General Commentyep, I've been playing it in the last few days and was a bit surprised about how many good songs are in there... "Witness" is also great, with the horns that reminds me of those on Women+Country, or I should say the other way around :)

    General Commentback to the song, I really like the line "making room for new regrets," which reminds me of how difficult it is not to make the same mistakes again and again... I prefer the acoustic version, though (the one played live for Radio Alice)
