One of the lesser known songs on the album, "Flora’s Secret" was the sixth song on the album, with lyrics written by Roma Ryan, the same writer for all the other songs. A very chillful and peaceful song, it is very similar to Enya’s work on her first album, but distinguishes itself with new instrumentals and pleasant vibes.
The song expresses a fairy-like environment, starting with the verse: "Lovers In The Long Grass".
The lyrics continue to express a sort of paradise for two lovers, with visual scenes such as
All around the sounds
Tears from Persia
The title of the song expresses the fact that the secret of the flora, of the flowers lies deep inside the lovers’ hearts and only they can know it:
Close behind her
Whispering of love
Telling them of love
Flora’s secret is a song that expresses love, peace and being on a very successful album by Enya, is part of a masterpiece that will last forever.
Enya’s voice is very special and adds variety to the song, the instrumental being surreal as well.
