Uprooted flower

Music & Lyrics: The Muser

“The souls of men are like flowers, each rooted to its place. One can’t go to another because it would have to break away from its roots… A flower can’t do anything to make a seed go to its right place; the wind does that and the wind comes and goes when it pleases.” (Hermann Hesse, Knulp)

Uprooted flower

They say that love makes two become one

but who could dare to share his soul?

We come together, we join, and have fun

but in the evening when the sky is dark

we feel so lonely as the stars

No reason why, a pointless cry and despair

Each one is on his own, all alone,

staring at a fountain full of tears

A man must bear the pain without an aid

A heart is like a flower rooted up

How nice it would be if the two became one

but could this happen for real?

We like to think it is a short and straight path

but there are crossroads where we break up

and left so lonely as the stars above

No reason why, a pointless cry and despair

Each one is on his own, all alone,

staring at a fountain full of tears

A man must bear the pain without an aid

A heart is like a flower that’s rooted up

carried away by the wind
