Blue Flower Lyrics

waiting for a sign from you
waiting for the signal to change
have you forgotten what your love can do
is this the end

walking through the city
your boots are high heeled and are shining bright
the sun is sparkling on the shaft of your knife
flower in morning rain
dying in my hands
was it all in vain?

superstar in your own private movie
i wanted just a minor part
but i'm no fool
i know you're cool
i never really wanted your heart

your feet rough heat
nothing seems to bring you down
it's not that cool when i'm around
flower in morning rain
dying in my hands
was it all in vain?

superstar in your own private movie
i wanted just a minor part
but i'm no fool
i know you're cool
i never really wanted your heart

this song is about a person that is in a relationship with someone they love, a relationship that seems to be ending.

it's that kind of relationship in which she was always in the 'lower' position of being the most interested one, the one that loves more. but she seemed to accept that situation and she's kept it cool throughout it.

now that it's ending she sees it as a fulfilled prophecy.

  • I'm no fool, I know you're cool / I never really wanted your heart *

she probably thought that one day the dynamics of the relationship would change, but that didn't happen. she's still the one that loves more.

  • was it all in vain? *

it's not that she wasn't loved at all, it's just that she always felt like she was the one to which the relationship mattered more.

i think it captures this very realistic feeling of being so insecure and in such a shitty position but at the same time trying to look like you've got it together, like you knew what you were getting into from the start.

you're sad. you're not cool enough for them, you have never been. you wanted just a minor part. but at least you know it, you've always known, so you got it all under control.

She's seeing this guy. Maybe they're not in a serious relationship. She's waiting for a signal that make her feel more secure that he feels the same way.

Sometimes we feel a strong conection whit one particulary person but that doesn't mean the other is gonna have the same feelings.

She think of him more often and hope that maybe he is reciprocating this love but his mind is in another place. But in deep she knows he's kind of a cool boy. Someone popular, who likes to meet new people, who like to be more free or not comitte to anyone, even if she just want to hang out whit him o just see him more often.

PS: I didn't know it was sort of a cover and I never heard that song. On the other side is pretty cool that the music is similar to I'll be your mirror (I love VU).

Sorry for my inglish!

My Interpretation

@gaby.blur I felt the same way as you did when I heard the song for the first time. ????

in fact, this is a cover of a song from slapp happy's first album, "sort of" (1972). quite a gorgeous cover, blew my mind when i heard the original; mazzy really make it their own

Song Comparison

I always heard the lyric as "The sun was sparklin' on the shaft of your night" and i thought the song was about a self-centred guy who gets off quickly and doesn't look after his partner.

This song sounds like a tribute to the Velvet Underground - the guitar/ tambourine combo. The guiatr solo at the end is the melody from "I'll Be Your Mirror."
