Seals & Crofts — Windflowers lyrics

(intro music by David Paich; lyrics and music by James Seals and Dan Seals, 1974)
From the albums unborn child (1974) and lift up your voices and sing, vol. 3 (1997).

Windflowers, my father told me not to go near them, he feared them always,
Said they carried him away.
Windflowers, I couldn't wait to touch them, to smell them, I held them closely.
Now I cannot break away.

Their sweet bouquet disappears like a vapor in the desert. Take a warning, son.

Windflowers, their beauty captures every young dreamer who lingers near them.
Ancient windflowers, I love you.
