Weekly Song Lyrics: Flowers of Romance

A song which has been going through my mind recently.
By Lydon/Levene, 1981.
Now in the summer
I could be happy or in distress
Depending on the company
On the veranda
Talk of the future or reminisce
Behind the dialogue
We're in a mess
Whatever I intended
I sent you flowers
You wanted chocolates instead
The flowers of romance
The flowers of romance

I've got binoculars
On top of boxhill
I could be Nero
Fly the eagle and start all over again
I can't depend on these so called friends
It's a pity you need to defend
I'll take the furniture,
Start all over again

For the uninitiated, Public Image Limited was Johnny Lydon's group for ten years after the Sex Pistols blew apart. The best album is Metal Box/Second Edition.
