Dreaming of the willow pattern
A phase I'm going through
Dreaming of the willow pattern
There’s something I should do
 
I’d never see the world without you
You opened up my eyes
I’d never see the world without you
And now I realise
 
Never turn around
Never transit
Never play dead
Don't ever walk backwards
 
Never turn around
Never transit
Never play dead
Don't ever walk backwards
  
You should never take a thing for granted
You only miss it when it’s gone
And it’s stupid to be holding grudges
Because we only got so long
  
So long (x7)
  
I’m dreaming of the willow pattern
She kept it in her room
An oriental china set
A gift I would assume
  
She told me how you loved her so much
That everybody died
Another universal theme
Don’t hold it all inside
  
Never turn around
Never transit
Never play dead
Don't ever walk backwards
 
Never turn around
Never transit
Never play dead
Don't ever walk backwards
  
You should never take a thing for granted
You only miss it when it’s gone
And it’s stupid to be holding grudges
Because we only got so long
  
So long (x7)
 
I affiliate with you (x6)
  
I know we’d all have died
 
Never turn around
Never transit
Never play dead
Don't ever walk backwards
  
Never turn around
Never transit
Never play dead
Don't ever walk backwards
  
You should never take a thing for granted
You only miss it when it’s gone
And it’s stupid to be holding grudges
Because we only got so long

    General CommentDolores has said it is about her mother in law dying of cancer. This is saying how the experience her mother in law went through taught her life is fragile.
