The Wildflower Song
by Lui Collins


Too many times I've fallen for a bold, flirtacious smile.
My emotions had a way of breaking loose and running wild
'Till recently I reigned them in, behind a casual front.
'm older now and wiser, not so quick to fall in love.

Then why did I waken this morning with a song inside my head?
Why the smile upon my lips, a lift in every step?
And why, when I walked among summer wildflowers of widest range of hue,
Did the colors all grow brighter with the memory of you?

Love, for all its newborn joy, may later take its toll.
For expectations not quite met, we finally come to boil.
For all the pleasures gained in love, I've been too often burned.
I've sworn to live alone and keep the distance I have earned.

Then why did I waken this morning with a song inside my head?
Why the smile upon my lips, a lift in every step?
And why, when I walked among summer wildflowers of widest range of hue,
Did the colors all grow brighter with the memory of you?

Last night you warmed my kitchen with the crinkle of your smile,
Brought to my hall a comfort it has missed for a long while.
And though I'm scared of letting down the barriers inside
Already you have touched my heart to melt away the ice.

And so I awoke this morning with a song inside my head,
With a smile upon my lips, a lift in every step.
And then when I walked among summer wildflowers of widest range of hue,
The colors all grew brighter with the memory of you.

And so I awoke this morning with a song inside my head,
With a smile upon my lips, a lift in every step.
And now when I walk among summer wildflowers of widest range of hue,
The colors all grow brighter with the memory of you
