Approaching Lavender Lyrics

If you'd like to spend the afternoon approaching Lavender
You'll feel just fine but one thing's sure
You'll never be the same
If you'd like to try your hand at understanding Lavender
Then you must be very sure
That life is not a game

    Love this song. Intriguing rhyme scheme and lyrics.

    I’ve always interpreted it as a man encountering a new lover— he’s mesmerized by her charm and beauty, but apprehensive as he knows that he’ll be drawn in irretrievably if he commits to her.
