They say flowers bloom in spring
Red and golden, blue and pink
They say seasons turn in time
Theirs are changing, why won't mine?
The only thing he knows about the changing of seasons (or emotions, in this metaphor) is what other people have told him. He knows that there are times when you’re supposed to be colorful and happy, but he’s still sad all the time.
