Roses Can Be Blue

WALKING THIS CITY IN THE WINTERTIME

WATCHING THE WORLD LIKE A GHOST

I KNOW YOU LIKE THE RIVER, NAKED AS THE TREES

WINDING MY WAY THROUGH YOUR EMPTY STREETS

HOLD ME TIGHT AS I FLY LIKE A KITE 

I LOVE YOU MORE RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW KNOWING

SOMEDAY YOU WILL DIE

 

WALTZ WITH ME IN THE LAND OF NOW

BURY ME WITH YOU

SING WITH ME AS WE BOTH KNOW HOW, YOU KNOW

ROSES CAN BE BLUE

MY FOOTFALL MAY BE A FICKLE GUIDE

FOR NOW LETS BELIEVE WE ARE NEVER ALONE

I'LL WADE INTO THE WATER, HEAD OUT OF THE BLUE

COUNTING THE CLOUDS FRAME THIS CRESCENT MOON 

IT MIGHT MAKE YOU WEARY BUT IT MIGHT MAKE YOU WISE

I LOVE YOU MORE RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW KNOWING

SOMEDAY YOU WILL DIE

 

WALTZ WITH ME IN THE LAND OF NOW

BURY ME WITH YOU

SING WITH ME AS WE BOTH KNOW HOW, YOU KNOW

ROSES CAN BE BLUE

 

LIKE RIPS SURGING UNDERWATER

TAKES US DEEPER THAN WE KNOW

I SAW THE PETALS FLOATING AWAY

I WAS HOLDING MY BREATH

UNDER THE WEIGHT OF OUR CLOTHES

IT DIDN'T MAKE A SPLASH

BUT I FELT IT CRASH DOWN

I NEVER SAW IT COMING 

IT NEVER MADE A SOUND

IT'S SWIMMING IN CIRCLES

INSIDE OF MY HEAD

ALL THAT IT SAID IS

I LOVE YOU MORE RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW KNOWING

SOMEDAY YOU WILL DIE

WALTZ WITH ME IN THE LAND OF NOW

BURY ME WITH YOU

SING WITH ME AS WE BOTH KNOW HOW, YOU KNOW

ROSES CAN BE BLUE

ROSES CAN BE BLUE

ROSES CAN BE BLUE

WALTZ WITH ME IN THE LAND OF NOW

BURY ME WITH YOU

SING WITH ME AS WE BOTH KNOW HOW, YOU KNOW

ROSES CAN BE BLUE

ROSES CAN BE BLUE

ROSES CAN BE BLUE
