Written on a December eve during my undergraduate days at Loyola University. It's about realizing your heart is never fully pure. But maybe you can try and get there.


There are flowers in the pavement, there are flowers in the park
There are flowers in the pavement, but weeds in my hardened heart.

Away, a walking city on a chill filled night
The smell of perfume, the shimmering light
I was pure blinded by the dark of the night
A purse made of leather, a heart made of gold
A warm hello turns from warmer to cold
I was merely blinded, maybe a bit too bold

There are flowers...

I can't quite explain the way the rocks look at night
A stroll on the lake, the darkening light
Tell me now something: will I know when it's right?
A blister from coldness, a frostbitten stare
A grease-filled tinge rubbed me to bare
I was rejected and I knew right then and there

There are flowers...

An ice cold coffee could finish me off
A song, no worry, but is it enough?
To write about problems that make me seem aloof
Society I cry you give me some proof
