You and me
We sweat
We slave
We gamble recklessly as if a dagger in the dark
Me and you
We misbehave
We trample fecklessly upon the bladder of our hearts

But it’s a happy flower in the morning sun
And it’ll keep perfuming when the morning's done
This ain’t no tacky flower in a masquerade
And it’ll keep on blooming till it steals the shade
Of the garden ‘neath our windowpane

You and me
We leave
We lie
We’re running through the ramble off the road of sad goodbyes
Me and you
We tease
We try
We’re cutting off the ample charms put forward from the skies

But it’s a happy flower in the morning sun
And it’ll keep on glowing when the morning’s done
And though our happy flower doesn’t make a sound
Well it’ll keep growing till it fills the ground
Of the garden ‘neath our windowpane

Happy flower...

    General CommentI think this song is about a couple with a somewhat dysfunctional relatioship. And yet, there's still love. They strive to succeed, but sometimes they fail. They struggle with their own faults, and the "Happy Flower" represents their love and their hope.

    The song also makes me think of children that have very flawed parents like this. But even in the midst of serious family problems, the child still manages to thrive, almost as if the child were the "happy flower" that will bloom one day.

    But anyway, it's a very pretty song.
