Automatic Flowers Lyrics

Play "Automatic Flowers"
on Amazon Music

and Sara thinks she's died here once before
she's crazy
a pop-up book of flowers from grade 4
are driving her insane
no-one knows why
she's sad tonight
no-one can help her find

crying, she couldn't afford
the view
crying, these...

    Lead singer Raine Maida started writing this by thinking about a woman who lived alone in her apartment. She had little going on in her life, and the apartment was dingy, without much of a view. She had boxes from her childhood, and one day she took out a pop-up book and opened it to a garden with pop-up flowers. Whenever she wanted to cheer herself up, she opened the book. He didn't put the entire history in the lyrics, just traces of it - "Crying, crying/She couldn't afford the view/Crying, crying/These automatic flowers won't do."
