"Wildflower" as written by and Sheryl Crow....
Quiet hour
You have always been my wildflower
Showing up wherever beauty's lost its way
Your heart must break

I was free
Until I heard the song you sang me to me
Pulling me away from everything I knew
To be with you

And everything I know just fades away
And every time you go it hurts me so
I don't know why when I know we're free
Free to fly

Here we are
Burning faster than the cursed star
Falling back down to the Earth
I love you so it sometimes hurts

Closer still
You will find me standing on the hill
Waiting for you with my arms stretched open wide
Now, come inside

And everything I know just fades away
And every time you go it hurts me so
I don't know why when I know we're free
Free to fly

And everything I know just fades away
And where the wildflower grows it picks its space
And that's the way it is when nature plays its lovely hand
We'll understand everything

Everything, everything

    General CommentVery beautiful song - Sheryl Crow doesn't usually sing this high, and it sounds great. The dramatic pitch change between the lines
    And every time you go it hurts me so
    I don't know why....
    I love this song

    General CommentI think the metaphore "wildflower" describes love in its purest form (therefore being "wild"). The song is about the consequences love can have on your life, e.g. love can suddenly turn your life upside down to the point where nothing else matters ("everything I know just fades away").
    Moreover, Sheryl Crow creates some beautiful pictures describing this relationship of love:
    "Here we are Burning faster than the cursed star" and
    "You will find me standing on the hill Waiting for you with my arms stretched open wide"

    Best Lines:
    "And where the wildflower grows it picks its space
    And that's the way it is when nature plays its lovely hand
    We'll understand everything"
