I know the music sounds so chipper, but my mood has sunken down through the floorboards, so bitter
it makes me wonder, if she ever enjoyed a good song like this, or if she ever saw the stars glitter
what nasty, vile creature was harbored in her soul, to make her such a quitter?
she was so beautiful and she could have been something better
but she had that empty feeling deep down in her soul
I don’t think anyone could have saved her
That beautiful Asian flower…
You see, she met a guy online and dreamed of running away to Ireland
but her mamma said stay, this is where you belong
but she didn’t find any comfort in her own culture’s music
she could never sing along
and she desperately sought something more spiritual than her island
and it made her mamma cry
every time her daughter wistfully gazed up into the sky
every time she talked about running away
just to be with some older guy
so her parent’s set her up with a young Asian man
and she was happy with him for so many days
I’m pretty sure it was just a silly phase
because her naivety caught her up in a maze, that had a doom-filled ending
And do you know what’s interesting?
she never fell in love, she was just blinded by infatuation
and he never loved her either because
one day he told her to meet her down by the riverside
and he told her he was leaving without much of an explanation
he just didn’t love her anymore
and that’s why her life ended that night
I know it’s a terrible story but thanks for listening
you might think it was a tragic love story
but how? that girl never knew love
and she killed herself so early
and vowed to never love again, even in reincarnation
And all they saw when they found her
was a picture of her and him
in the middle of all her blood glistening
and her mamma asked, why oh why?
and they said she was just blinded by infatuation
this was no act of desperation in the name of love,
no Romeos here, no Juliets – but they wanted a better explanation
And now I can’t help but ponder as I listen to this uplifting love song
is it something her soul regrets?
so I search deep inside, why, why, why?
why did she live such a tragic life?
what was the point of her suffering, if not to teach us something now
her soul could have been bright like the sun and free like an eagle
but she became that poor Asian flower cast by her own shadow
It wasn’t his fault, she never could have blamed that guy Romeo
I know, it was just because she didn’t know who she was inside
lost and in search of her salvation
she felt lonely, and a huge sense of dislocation
when she couldn’t know herself, she couldn’t feel the sun
her mother was spiritual and supportive, but through her genes, she was the magical one
but she refused to accept who she was right until the day she died
and so I say, my friends, dance and sing!
and embrace the true love in life, that glistens for everyone and everything
life is too precious to be blinded by infatuation!
that real love is everywhere, but it doesn’t come from outside
it’s in our hearts
inside you and I
and inside we know how to follow love instead of infatuation
and I will live my life, doubly in love just for her, with clear eyes
shining brightly like the sun, free like the eagle, until the day I die
and I hope that you, too, won’t be blinded by infatuation
R.I.P my Asian flower
