Winter Rose

 ..FOLLOWING SEAS   

 

Winter Rose
 

saw an earthquake on the west coast
saw ‘em tearing down the wall
saw my baby ask her teddy bear
when’s daddy coming home
and i’m tryin’ to write this letter
but i don’t know what to say
i know how words can hurt you
it’s so damned hard to wait

CHORUS
we got lies ‘til April
that’s what she said
and the purple of a dyin’ rose
won’t get me into bed
don’t you try to blame me
put your fears to rest
‘cause when i go
the good lord know
i’ve given you my best

six months slowly wastin’
love’s gone underground
letters from a dream not home
to a heart that can’t be found
there’s a new song on the radio
and the season’s new premiers
no matter how i bide my time
you’ll wonder if i’m here

CHORUS
 

someone’s cryin’ pictures

someone’s painting fears

someone shades a cheatin’ lamp

but i’m still lying here

tryin’ to write this letter

as tears fall on the page

i curse the day i met you

but don’t mean what i say

 

we got lies ‘til April

that’s what she said

and the purple of a dyin’ rose

won’t get me into bed

and the purple of a dyin’ rose

won’t get me into bed
