"Flowers on My Window Ledge" as written by Rissi Palmer, Edward Monroe Hill and Shaye Smith....
I've ordered the flowers on my window ledge
Visions runnin' through my head
Fields of indigo and red
I hear the words I can't forget

And I remember what you said
And how you'd always hold me
And how one day you'd show me

The bluebird, it's in Texas
The magnolias in Savannah
The sunflowers in Kansas
Yeah, that's what you said

The desert roses in Nevada
Wild daisies in Montana
That was the plan but instead
I'm starin' at these flowers on my window ledge

Wishin' you were still with me
There's no tellin' where we'd be
All the beauty we would see
Have the whole world at our feet

In my heart I sure believed
We'd always be together
And now, I know we'll never

See the roses bloom in London
Or the lilies bloom in Paris
The shamrocks up in Dublin
Yeah, we always said we'd see

The orchids down in Rio
The cherry blossoms out in Tokyo
That was the plan
But instead, I'm starin' at these flowers

I could go all by myself
Or I could go with someone else

But that was our dream
And we were so in love
So it wouldn't be the same
No, it wouldn't mean as much to see

The bluebird, it's in Texas
The magnolias in Savannah
The sunflowers in Kansas
Yeah, we always said

The desert roses in Nevada
Wild daisies in Montana
That was the plan
Yeah, we made so many plans to see

The roses bloom in London
Or the lilies bloom in Paris
The shamrocks up in Dublin
Yeah, we'd always said we'd see

The orchids down in Rio
The cherry blossoms out in Tokyo
That was the plan but instead
I'm starin' at these flowers on my window ledge

What are the flowers on my window ledge'
Indigo and red
I'm starin' at these flowers

    General CommentI'm listening to this song right now.
    I'm mad I'm just discovering its genius.

    This song is about a girl telling her guy that they made each other promises to see flowers around the world, but she's stuck (and maybe he is, too) looking at the simple ones outside of her window. I'm pretty sure it's not REALLY about the flowers and more about them making plans to do things and not seeing them through.

    Great song.!
