Wilted Rose

(Vs)
Sometimes in the night I hear you whisper to me;
feel your warm breath on my neck the way it used to be,
but when I awake, its back to my nightmare;
that my dreams are only dreams; you’re no longer there

(Ch)
I can feel the thorn of the wilted rose,
cutting me deep to the core
I’m still clinging to the wilted rose
and the thorn hurts even more
It might be a poor metaphor,
but it’s the one I’ve chose;
I can’t stop clinging to a wilted rose

(Vs)
There will come a time, I won’t miss you like I do,
but I’m not ready for closure yet, my grieving isn’t through

(Ch)
I can feel the thorn of the wilted rose,
cutting me deep to the core
I’m still clinging to the wilted rose
and the thorn hurts even more
It might be a poor metaphor,
but it’s the one I’ve chose;
I can’t stop clinging to a wilted rose

Never letting go of the wilted rose

Thanks Larry, I've got to work will Christine a few times now, she's the bomb, as well as the rest of the gang. It's a privileged to be a part of something with this gang

Thank you very much Dean. I didn't do much but write the lyric, Christine and gang brought it alive. Glad to be part of it though. Really appreciate the listen and comment.

Wow. That was cool. I've started listening to this a couple of times, but this is the first time I had a chance to listen all the way through. It's a great song. Look forward to more.

Well written lyric, LJ, and Christine pays full dues with her fine vocal, very professional performance by the "Band", and production/mix sounds so smooth. A winner, and I enjoyed my listen. Expect to hear this one on the radio. Mick
