A Covenant of Thorns

A Covenant of Thorns - Tears and Roses

rate me

You live alone in your little corner of this lost world

I remember your name though I doubt you remember mine

We watched the sky shed its color from blue to black

I remember the deafening roar of the wind through the trees

Your powdered white face, black lines, sunken eyes

Remind me of the days when we laughed for hours

My hand in yours as the lightning lit an empty sky

My hand in yours

Your powdered white face, black lines, sunken eyes

Remind me of the days when we laughed for hours

My hand in yours as the lightning lit an empty sky

Empty promises, forgotten dreams, and tears

The afternoon shadows stretch through your bedroom windowsill

And down the hall to the room where I sleep each night

Waiting alone in silence for you to return

Waiting alone

The afternoon shadows stretch through your bedroom windowsill

And down the hall to the room where I sleep each night

Waiting alone in silence for you to return

Give me fears, false comfort, and tears

I stand in the corner of your room as you walk away

Down the same hall to the room that was never mine

The tears fall as the roses wilt away

Yeah, wilt away

Oh, with tears
