My flower would not unfold
Always waiting for some sunnier day
Quiet and patient, but afraid and hidden away
And the awful truth's been told, matter of fact
And I can't take it back and I wouldn't want to
Or at least that's what I say
Will you come out now?
Now that it's too late for me to be in on the scene
I hurt you bad, but you know you're a dream
Do you want success, oh yeah
Through somebody else, oh no, no, no, no
So start over, it's been a time since you've had to
Do you got your own thing?
Yeah, what you want to do for now
Stop taking everything back
It confronts you just lying down
Will you come out now?
Who would you do it for
Unlucky charm, beautiful collapsing star?
Who would it be?
Why wasn't it me?

    General Commentthe link's still valid, but the song has been renamed "Unlucky Charm." Does anyone know if you can change the titles of songs, but keep the lyrics?
