Clare Bowen – Black Roses lyrics

I can see your eyes staring into mine
But it's a battlefield, and I'm on the other side
You can throw your words sharper than a knife
And leave me cold in another house on fire

I lay low, lay low
And watch the bridges burn
I lay low, lay low
What more could I have done

Now you only bring me black roses
And they crumble into dust when they're held
Now you only bring me black roses
Under your spell

She told me twice all of her good advice
But I couldn't see, I was clouded by your lies
Up in smoke, a vision she foretold
She said stay away because that boy's a warning sign


I lay low, lay
And watch the bridges burn

Now you only bring me black roses
And they crumble into dust when they're held
Now you only bring me black roses
Under your spell

And I'm done being the one
Trying to pick up the broken pieces
And I'm done being the one
Who says, "I love you, dear, but I'm leaving"

Now you only bring me black roses
And they crumble into dust when they're held
Now you only bring me black roses
But I'm not under your spell

I'm not under your spell (x4)
