Lyrics
I watch you show
the profusion of colours your petals bestow
in fragrant flares all through the night
'till daybreak turns from blue to bright

let me know now
is it now or is it never
is it for real or is it forever ?

strangeness yet to come
leaves have died and grown back on
with earth we bury when tired of strife
from earth we came into this life

so when you see me fall apart
won't you help me up and guide me back to start?
even in my dreams when I am in doubt
oh,Lord won't you help me when I am down and out ?

no colours seem right
they faded out into the night
who will turn the light back on,
when darkness turns from black to wrong?
let me know now
is it now or is it never
is it for real or is it forever ?
is it now or is it never
is it for real or is it forever ?
is it now or is it never
is it for real or is it forever ?

everything is great when you're dead
your family surrounds you,there are flowers in your bed
everything is just like they said...
I like lying down just to feel it.
