Lyrics

THE WILD BRANCH OF ROSE

Midnight gave warning.
The Stranger’s cruel arrival
Would corrupt all the innocence she perceived in her heart.
She heeded it not, and answered his knock.

Suffer me not this moment to say
I’m sorry for all of the times that I gave
you nothing but rage. No flowers, no page
of soft, tender verse. Though I give this too late-
I want you to take and place on my grave
this wild branch of rose so that you will be safe from my endless hell that I can't dispel,
and it's intricate maze that’s trapped you so well.

Years passed draining.
Her artful soul kept giving.
I cannot take it away- this pain that I placed in your life, but I leave this branch- your one respite.

I don’t mean to break, destroy or forsake.
It's just in my nature. God made me this way.
Infallible of sin, yet you let me in
again, and again in the faith that you'd win
me over one day. But I’ve lost my way.
I left you with darkness and nothing to say.
To wander in haze, and ponder your days
and your generous ways I surely have betrayed.

NIM VIND SOLO

Suffer me not this moment to say
I’m sorry for all of the times that I gave
you nothing but rage. No flowers, no page
of soft, tender verse. Though I give this too late-
I want you to take and place on my grave
this wild branch of rose so that you will be safe from my endless hell that I can't dispel,
and it's intricate maze that’s trapped you so well.

The Wild Branch of Rose
Will bloom in place of me.

Forgive my letting go.
