lyrics

It's been a very long winter, now my dear it's finally spring
I look around and see just how the world is blossoming
Dogwood and magnolia trees make for a lovely view
The world's a pink explosion and I guess I'm blooming too

Rhododendron, cherry, plum, up and down the street
Hibiscus and azaleas and crepe myrtle can't be beat
With every variation, every shade and every hue
The world's a pink explosion and I guess I'm blooming too

I used to try to blend in, yeah I'd try so hard to hide
But oh it feels so good to wear my colors on the outside

My heart it feels so happy and I think that's just because
I'm finally who I'm meant to be and who I always was
So take my hand my friend and come along for my debut
The world's a pink explosion and I guess I'm blooming too
The world's a pink explosion and I guess I'm blooming too
The world's a pink explosion and I guess I'm blooming too
