"Flowers Grow Out Of My Grave" as written by and Ryan Gosling Zach Shields....
I was floating above my bed,
Like a body in a river, in car.
And the only sound in my head
was a dying cricket in a jar.
And I saw little beams of light
come into the bedroom,
from underneath the door.
And they crawled under my sheets,
and they came out of every single pore.

When I think about you, (oh oh oh!)
When I think about you, (oh oh!)
When I think about you,
flowers grow out of my grave, grave grave!
Grave, grave, grave!
Flowers grow out of my grave!
(x2)

    General CommentI think the floating above his bed part is about dying and floating above his own body.

    And the 'when I think about you, flowers grow out of my grave' part is about being in love.

    That's what I think.

    I love them so much.

    Especially Baby Goose. :) <3

    General CommentInstantaneously, in connection to the title of the song "Flowers Grow Out Of My Grave" we can discern that love is still apparent, despite being dead. The soul is still a live, and the love never stops.
