[wpspoiler name=”Original lyrics” style=”aatw-other” open=”true”]
Flowers blossoming on the cliff
Are the earliest to fade;
The girl married in a far-off place
Languishes in her lover’s arms.

Flowers blossoming in the desert
Are the earliest to fade;
The girl is married now
And by her promise will abide.

Once there were oaths to love,
Once there were sweet dates,
Once there was a warm embrace,
But now you are married in a far-off place.[/wpspoiler]
[wpspoiler name=”Lyrics of All Around This World version” style=”aatw-other” open=”true”]Flowers blooming on the cliff
Are the earliest to fade
Once I loved a flower dear
Now my flower’s gone away
Flowers flowers everywhere
Flowers are no more today
Once I loved a flower dear
Now my flower’s gone away[/wpspoiler]
