"Blue Flower" as written by Peter Blegvad and John Moore Anthony....
Waitin' for a sign from you
Waitin' for a signal to change
Have you forgotten what your love can do?
Is this the end?

Walkin' through the city
Your boots are high-hilled and are shinin' bright
The sun was sparklin' on the shaft of your knife
Flower in the morning rain
Dying in my hand

Was it all in vain?
Superstar in your own private movie
I wanted just a minor part
But I'm no fool
I know you're cool
I never really wanted your heart

You're the keeper of the key
Nothing seems to bring you down
It's not that cool when I'm around
Flower in the morning rain
Dying in my hand

Was it all in vain?
Superstar in your own bright movie
I wanted just a minor part
But I'm no fool
I know you're cool
I never really wanted your heart

    My InterpretationI always heard the lyric as "The sun was sparklin' on the shaft of your night" and i thought the song was about a self-centred guy who gets off quickly and doesn't look after his partner.

    My Interpretationthis song is about a person that is in a relationship with someone they love, a relationship that seems to be ending.

    it's that kind of relationship in which she was always in the 'lower' position of being the most interested one, the one that loves more. but she seemed to accept that situation and she's kept it cool throughout it.

    now that it's ending she sees it as a fulfilled prophecy.

    * I'm no fool, I know you're cool / I never really wanted your heart *

    she probably thought that one day the dynamics of the relationship would change, but that didn't happen. she's still the one that loves more.

    * was it all in vain? *

    it's not that she wasn't loved at all, it's just that she always felt like she was the one to which the relationship mattered more.

    i think it captures this very realistic feeling of being so insecure and in such a shitty position but at the same time trying to look like you've got it together, like you knew what you were getting into from the start.

    you're sad. you're not cool enough for them, you have never been. you wanted just a minor part. but at least you know it, you've always known, so you got it all under control.

    General CommentThis song sounds like a tribute to the Velvet Underground - the guitar/ tambourine combo. The guiatr solo at the end is the melody from "I'll Be Your Mirror."
