Come back,
and bring me those flowers I sent you--
sent you on your special day.
I cannot recall their name.

Fourteen petals
that's reaching for sunlight
and turns it all into green.
My favorite color, it seems.

Since then,
I have been trying
to find them--
in every market I see.
Nowhere they appear[s] to be.

Roses?
Sunflowers--
daisies are not them.
Nothing compare to these...

Roses?
Sunflowers--
daisies are not them.
Nothing compare to these...

Roses?
Sunflowers--
daisies are not them.
Nothing compares.

    General CommentIt's a silly, but sad song.
    The speaker clearly wants his/her lover back (notice the first line). The funny part is that the speaker starts comparing his/her lover to a flower (Gladiolus) and how all other flowers don't compare.
