Spring Awakening – The Song Of Purple Summer lyrics

And all shall fade
The flowers of spring
The world and all the sorrow
At the heart of everything

But still it stays
The butterflies sings
And opens purple summer
With the flutter of it's wings

The Earth will wave with corn
The gray-fly choir will mourn
And mares will neigh with
Stallions that they mate, foals they've borne

And all shall know the wonder of purple summer

And yet I wait
The swallow brings
A song too hard to follow
That no one else can sing
The fences sway
The porches swing
The clouds begin to thunder
Crickets wander, murmuring

The Earth will wave with corn
The gray-fly choir will mourn
And mares will neigh with
Stallions that they mate, foals they've borne

And all shall know the wonder
I will sing the song of purple summer
All shall know the wonder
I will sing the song of purple summer

All shall know the wonder of purple summer.

All shall know the wonder of purple summer.

    The meaning of this song is to convey the period of time in which an adolescent child reaches maturity and leaves their childhood behind which is shown by the lyrics, "And All shall fade, the flowers of spring". In literature flowers are usually an archetype for youth or innocence and this childhood naivety is being left behind. The writer of this so g says a "Purple Summer" is a period in which the crops are ready to harvest, kids are finally ready to let go of their childhood. Melchior and the rest of the cast are finally able to move past the events of their past.

    In addition to what Unregistered said, it is also a parallel between those kids in the show who still live and those who died. It's the living one's hopes for a better, fruitful future and a peaceful heaven for those who passed on. In both cases, what awaits them is better than the cold winter and the painful spring they left behind.
