Miranda was inspired to write this song based on her personal experience. She said,
“I had some flowers that I got for Valentines Day in a vase on the kitchen table. I was going on the road so I had to throw them in the yard. They were just laying there and it was a really sad image. The song came to me right away and was one of those ones that kinda wrote itself.”
He ain’t feelin’ anythin’
My love, my hurt or the sting of this rain
I’m drivin’ through a hurricane
All he can say is, “Man ain’t it such a nice day?”
Hey, hey, I guess we’ll just go to waste
Like dead flowers
I bet everyone has already received flowers from their loved ones. If I may ask, what do you usually feel when someone gives you flowers?
“Dead Flowers” is not the usual love song that has a happy ending. Rather, it is about a love that has gone bad. The narrator is saddened by the images of dead flowers and Christmas lights that are burned out which describes her failed relationship.
