Charlus - I Carry The Rose lyrics

I've walked the loneliest roads this world has ever known
To find my love
I carry the rose and my heart is open
I just want to feel alive-
Those promises we made
They return a child to the grave
Some things you never forget
Like losing your first love-innocence gone-
Or your parents when they pass away
These things steal into your sleep
And keep you wide-awake

I watched you so sadly when you became lost and tried to save you with my kiss
I whispered poetry into your ear and you laughed
And fell drunk to the floor
Lover don't
Lover don't
Lover, don't grow cold
Indifference kills, its poison spills
Into your memory-

I just hope when I become an old man
I can still find some one to hold
I hope when I grow too old
I can smile at the absurdity of it all

I've walked the loneliest roads this world has ever known
To find my love
I carry the rose and my heart is open
I just want feel alive
