Confused Bouquet

Words & Music: Van Schoonhoven

You made me do the things I never wanted to
Even though you never forced me
Reason for surrender must be my love for you
Still I can't see how
I still remember
All the things you never said
My fortress keeps cracking and crumbling ahead

I won't say I never caused you any pain
Hiding in my inner hemisphere
Boarded up to cut off all this emo-chain
Echoing all around
You're my defender
And my accomplice too
Maybe that's why when I crawl out it's up to you

From an occasional flowerbed
I made you this confused bouquet
Reluctantly cheering up in my head
But still the night resents the day

The morning after I can only sense war-paint
On everybody's face around me
You're the first one there to help me rearrange
To pull me out once again
Why in the first row
When they handed out this gloomy waste
Maybe that’s why I always melt in your embrace

From an occasional flowerbed
I made you this confused bouquet
Reluctantly cheering up in my head
But still the night resents the day

Reluctantly cheering up in my head
But still the night resents the day

You made me do the things I never wanted to
Even though you never forced me
