The Move - Flowers in the rain
Tekst en muziek: Roy Wood
(1967)






Woke up one morning half asleep
With all my blankets in a heap
And yellow roses gathered all around
The time was still approaching four
I couldn’t stand it anymore
Saw marigolds upon my eiderdown



I’m just sitting, watching flowers in the rain
Feel the power of the rain making the garden grow
I’m just sitting, watching flowers in the rain
Feel the power of the rain keeping me cool



So I lay upon my side
With all the windows opened wide
Couldn’t pressurize my head from speaking
Hoping not to make a sound
I pushed my bed into the ground
In time to catch the sight that I was seeking



I’m just sitting, watching flowers in the rain
Feel the power of the rain making the garden grow
I’m just sitting, watching flowers in the rain
Feel the power of the rain keeping me cool



If this perfect pleasure has the key
Then this is how it has to be
If my pillow’s getting wet
I don’t see that it matters much to me



I heard the flowers in the breeze
Make conversation with the trees
Believed to leave reality behind me
With my commitments in a mess
My sleep has gone away depressed
In a world of fantasy you’ll find me



I’m just sitting, watching flowers in the rain
Feel the power of the rain making the garden grow
I’m just sitting, watching flowers in the rain
Feel the power of the rain keeping me cool



Watching flowers in the rain
Flower in the rain
Power flowers in the rain
Power flower in the rain
