The White Stripes: Blue Orchid Meaning
Blue Orchid Lyrics
You got a reaction didn't, you?
You took a white orchid
You took a white orchid turned it blue
Something better than nothing
Something better than nothing, it's giving up
We all need to do something

I think it may have something to do that you can't actually have blue orchids: no amount of breeding the flowers has ever produced one. Make of that what you will.

The song is about someone being manipulative. "You took a white orchid/ turned it blue". It's about someone who always works things out how they want them to be and now he's fed up and pissed about it.

The only reason it said that they were brother/sister in my earlier post (the second one down) was because it was a quote from Jack White.

I would like to add that they presented themselves as brother and sister. They were married in 1996 and divorced in 2000. I took your advice and went to wikipedia.com and typed in "Meg White".

They are not brother and sister. Meg is Jack's ex! Look it up on Wikipedia.

I just wanted to say, that the White Stripes NEVER, not always, write about themselves. The following is a quote from an interview of Jack White by Meg White:
Jack - "you know I don't write about myself or my friends, let alone my sister."
