Tried to gather tulips for you

Were we never to be one
even after all that I’ve done
it looks as if we were always made to oppose, to conflict
eventually I realize that right from the start we were misfit
when you tried to make it right
I was still bruised, and when I tried
by then you were tired
now we have chosen opposite directions and paths
the distance between us will forever last
I tried to gather tulips for you
but you longed for the roses
I tried to gather tulips for you
it was no use
by then it was too late

Now that we even know it all crashed
with all hopes and dreams being plainly dashed
I guess none of us dares now to mend the spoiled situation
an useless effort would it be without the fate’s cooperation
the distances do not seem to decrease
the communication between us has ceased
it has always been like this, so weak
like an autumn leaf on a bare tree
I tried to gather tulips for you
but you looked at the roses some far away
I tried to gather tulips for you
it was no use
by then it was too late
