As a flower eases its way from the sidewalk, I see it
Its color possesses the town
Creating all the bystanders to frown

They don't know the significance of this
It's time they find out
It's time they know the significance of this

As I walk up to it
There's nothing more
I've got to find a way out

These thorns are protected by the sidewalk
Grab the sun and carry on

As I walk up to it gracefully
I'm stopped and astounded by its thorns

    General Commenti think this is about a girl... he talks about the girl as a flower. using that as a metaphor.

    "As I walk up to it gracefully
    I'm stopped and astounded by its thorns"
    - as he walks up to this girl he stops, surprised by how thorn&damaged she is. not a flower, a girl. a flower, metaphorically speaking.

    "These thorns are protected by the sidewalk
    Grab the sun and carry on"
    - its thorns are covered. like the girl is hiding something from everyone. she's pretending to be something she's not, or just covered as in hiding the real truth about her to everyone.

    eek.. that's just what i think. :]
