lyrics

It was the spring when first he came to me.
It was the spring when first I knew
he would be the one to first be one with me.
My bildungsroman from out of the blue.

The lilacs bloomed purple and I knew it was true:
what was lust before him now my love born anew.

It was the summer and we lived in bliss.
It was the summer when mother found out
of our unholy joining, our Corinthians kiss.
Magnolias child couldn't be found in the grass.

Bradford pear in bloom, how their smell filled the room.
It was August then and the equinox loomed.

It was in autumn that we said our goodbyes.
It was in autumn we agreed to make it work.
Oh my aster, I could not let it die.
Grow up from, don't return to the earth.

And he told me he loved me but he wrote it in prose
So the aster dies the magnolia grows.

And the weight of the ice, oh how it split us in half.
Like a Bradford pear we were split we were cracked.

I never saw him again.
