"Petals" as written by and Jarrod Gorbel....
Petals broke from tips of roses hidden underneath my arm
All the framed, different poses of places I'll soon forget
Yeah, I'll soon forget

Tell me again the part how you didn't feel a thing
The part how you never actually really ever did
And lift yourself from my grip
But don't fall asleep

Nothing you say can or will ever penetrate
The walls that I, I create
When you spew that barrage of insulting words

No that isn't all, that isn't all

Nothing you say can or will ever penetrate
These walls that I create
That I create, that I create

Five stitches seal the crease
From the fit fueled by your angry
You're so temperamental darling
With your little disease
Oh how sweet

Petals broke from tips of roses hidden underneath my arm
All the framed, different poses of places I'll soon forget
Yeah, well I'll soon forget

No that isn't all, that isn't all
And nothing you say can or will penetrate
These walls that I create,
No, that I create

I'm happy for you baby, but I don't want to know

    General CommentI think this song is about a man who tries to patch things up with the one he is with but it doesn't work out (thus the roses that are broken). He begins to realize that maybe his time with her wasn't that important to him after all (he'll 'soon forget') and he has hardened his heart to the things she says to try and hurt him. She can't get to him any more because he simply doesn't care.

    General Commentthe last line is so dead on - this song meant a lot for me when my ex got a new girlfriend. "i'm happy for you, baby, but i don't wanna know."
