there's patchouli, spanish blossom, frankincense, and rose
i'm lavender, lavender
there's cedarwood, champa, musk, and myrrh
i'm lavender, lavender
i was smolderlng then you breathed deep
may your soul be free now my smoke is sweet
there's sandalwood, lilac, magnolia
i'm lavender, lavender
ylang ylang, jasmine, amber
i'm lavender, lavender
i was smoldering then you breathed deep
now our soul is free and our smoke is sweet
lavender, lavender

    General CommentOh and she's describing herself as a scent of a flower becuase all things burn; the real meaning to this song is that her love died; she comes to pass and she dies and their souls are free together

    General CommentGood god, the live version on Swans Are Dead is second to only Helpless Child on that album. That intro is so chaotic, yet makes perfect, beautiful sense when it seeps into the actual song. Song has a sense of longing to it, as is somewhat stated above. Beautiful, sorrowful, haunting...
