Blood Red Rose

When I told him, he would never leave my heart
That's when he told me, the reddest rose will fall apart
Fall apart
Once he told me, our love could light the darkest night
And now he tells me, out of mind when out of sight
Out of sight
And as I listened, trails of pain burned down my face
Then he kissed me, sorrow leaves a bitter taste
Bitter taste
And as he left me, the petals drifted to the ground
And as I watched him, they blew away without a sound
Not a sound

Melting into darkness, emptyness of night embraces me
I want to find my peace, find in you what's not in me
Let my soul flow out, my mind reach up, my body float away
Can I be you and you be me?

So I sit here, in winter's garden nothing grows
And I shiver, to see the thorns but not a rose
Not a rose
And I wonder, if this garden's all it seems
Does love mean darkness? Is every stem a broken dream?
Broken dream
Do shades of black turn to angry red?
A single long stemmed rose to say that love is dead?
As I think about all the things you've said and done
My thoughts glow red like this morning's sun
This morning's sun
And how I long for these thousand thorns to pierce your skin
See the blood pour out as I drive the nails in
Turn the spear in your side, hope to see you die
Or even make you cry, just tell me why
Tell me why

Melting into darkness, emptyness of night embraces me
I want to find my peace, find in you what's not in me
Let my soul flow out, my mind reach up, my body float away
Can I be you and you be me?
