"Bloodflowers" as written by Robert James Smith, Simon Gallup, Roger O'donnell, Perry Bamonte and Jason Toop Cooper....
"this dream never ends" you said
"this feel never goes
The time will never come to slip away"
"this wave never breaks" you said
"this sun never sets again
These flowers will never fade"
"this world never stops" you said
"this wonder never leaves
The time will never come to say goodbye"
"this tide never turns" you said
"this night never falls again
These flowers will never die"

Never die
Never die
These flowers will never die

"this dream always ends" I said
"this feeling always goes
The time always comes to slip away"
"this wave always breaks" I said
"this sun always sets again
And these flowers will always fade"
"this world always stops" I said
"this wonder always leaves
The time always comes to say goodbye"
"this tide always turns" I said
"this night always falls again
And these flowers will always die"

Always die
Always die
These flowers will always die

Between you and me
It's hard to ever really know
Who to trust
How to think
What to believe
Between me and you
It's hard to ever really know
Who to choose
How to feel
What to do

Never fade
Never die
You give me flowers of love

Always fade
Always die
I let fall flowers of blood

    General CommentShe is so unrealistic and dreamy. He is so realistic and factual. The relationship could work, but the outside world influences won't let it!
    He knows it will fade and die. He morns the death of the relationship and thus let's fall the flowers of blood.

    General Commentrandyg4's pretty much got it in my opinion. Rather than it being pessimistic and optimistic people, it makes more sense to believe that he's much more of a realist than she is. I don't think the relationship could work at all, it's probably already over in this song, because he's saying the flowers will fade. The flowers SHE gave him. They've faded, along with the relationship and yeah, he's mourning the relationship.
    This is my favourite song because I'm a realist like him, it makes sense.

    General Commentbasically, all things have to end, maybe thats just the message of the whole album for instance "there is no if, jus when", "the fire is almost out, theres nothing left to burn"...... nothing lasts forever, beautiful song and album

    General CommentThe constant struggle between the optimistic, loving, caring, gentle girl, and the hurt, scared, bitter boy who cant accept her love, and thus drives her away....

    General Commentfleaaaaaa is right, all things come to an end, and maybe this song conveys a certain acceptance after persistance, without change......robert smith is amazing, yet the man is so humble! -he is a genius1

    General CommentLIES LIES LIES, it's all she(or whoever) ever told him, (she) tried to make a world of fantasy for him, telling him that everything would be ok that everything would work out, she spread the butter for him, (made things way easy) but he realized that all she was about were LIES LIES LIES (she) promised truth, and love forever. LIES ... WE ALL KNOW FLOWERS WILL ALWAYS DIE

    General CommentI agree with what you're all saying, but it could also be a song dealing with optimists versus pessimists. I know this is only scratching the surface of the lyrics, but it's just another way of looking at them :)

    General Commentjust pure powerful cure, great contrast in the song from beginning to end (start out sorta mellow and then just jams at the end), great changeups in keys.
    One of the 2 best songs on this album next to 39
