"When the Lillies Die" as written by Joanna G. Gikas and Leopold Lincoln Fitzgerald Ross....
Shanghai garden
Blossom kiss.
The currency of lovers would insist.

Empty promise
Empty prayer
There really wasn’t much to keep me there.
How is it you are so surprised?

In Paradise
the wintertime came early in the year.
You brought the frost and made yourself quite clear.
So don’t ask ‘Why?’ ask ‘Why?’
When the lilies die.

Foreign walls, electric smile
Can occupy the stranger for a while.

Plastic doors and plastic keys,
It all went from a whirlwind to a breeze.
How is it you are so surprised?

In Paradise
the wintertime came early in the year.
You brought the frost and made yourself quite clear.
So don’t ask ‘Why?’ ask ‘Why?’
When the lilies die.

    My InterpretationI think this song might be about feeling alienated in a relationship. Someone's bringing "frost" to a relationship that should feel like paradise. Suddenly everything is unrecognizable. Things aren't as you thought they would be. And the "lillies die", the hopes for the relationship go with them.
