Saywecanfly – Between The Roses lyrics

If you ever feel like I did when you slip between the cracks
Maybe then you’ll see how nothing stays in tact
And when my life is over maybe you can understand
That I planned everything, but nothing went as planned
It’s nothing personal, I just want you to know
I tried to understand

You tortured me with the silence in your throat
And you tortured me with the stillness in your bones
You kicked the chair from underneath my feet
You must have seen the noose made out of roses that I wore to guarantee
That you couldn’t go, that you wouldn’t leave me all alone
Cause if you did, you’d see my body hanging just above the floor
Beside a note, to tell the world how terrible it was
To fall in love with someone capable of cutting out my tongue,
Of cutting out my, of cutting out my tongue


So did you just forget, or do you really not remember
The bullets that we took so we could stay alive forever
And did you just forget, or do you really not remember
The poison that we drank, so that at least we’d die together

It’s comforting to fall asleep alone
And it’s comforting because it’s all I’ve ever known
If I should die before I wake
I pray to God my soul will find a peaceful place
Between the roses, between the roses
Because the earth is only pretty for so long
Between the roses, between the roses
You were the only one I’ll trust to sing along
To sing between the roses, sing my song

So did you just forget, or do you really not remember
The bullets that we took so we could stay alive forever
And did you just forget, or do you really not remember
The poison that we drank, so that at least we’d die together

As the sun went down, our hearts were heavy
We knew it was time, but I was not ready
To let you go, to say goodbye
To a love I thought would never die
You were quiet as hell and you looked so sad
As I kissed your lips with my regrets
In hopes that maybe we’d pretend
Forever never had to end

La, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la la la la
That maybe we'd pretend
Our hope had died, but our love’s not dead

So grab your black umbrella and make your way down to the graveyard
Where you’ll find the tree to which I tied this rope
And nothing is for certain, that’s the only thing I know
But I’m certain that it’s time for me to go
It’s nothing personal, it simply hurts to know
That I will be alone

    To me this song reminds me of my first girlfriend. We kept our love hidden from everyone and I don't think I've told anyone about her until now. But this song made me cry when I heard it for the first time and honestly it still makes me cry. To me, it's coming from my point of view in the first two verses, saying that even though I planned everything, nothing turned out the way I thought it would, and that I loved her so deeply that I was willing to give up my life to make her stay. And although the fact that our love kept me alive, it was the one thing slowly killing me inside. The line, "To fall in love with someone capable of cutting out my tongue" means that she knew me so deeply that she could destroy me from the inside out which is true.

    I just love this song, and I love how beautifully Braden can portray such a dark world. It just amazes me what he can do with words, and I hope I can do that some day.

    I'm so sorry (coughimaginedragonscough) if this review made no sense, it's my first, and I tried!

    This reminds me of my ex. I though we where going to be together forever and he promised we would and then one day it was like her forgot our love and all of the promises he started drifting farther and farther away and I could see it and It broke me down on the end side. I still remember all of our memories like watching the stars and watching the sunsut behind the backroad by our old house. He was the first person I ever loved. When he left the memories killed me on the inside, so I tried to kill me on the outside, he was the only one I cared about enough to let them get to my mind like that and I have never felt so hurt in my life then I did when he left. When I saw him again he asked for a hug we dated again and I actually believed that he wouldnt hurt me like that again but he did and now I can't breath because my life is gone and I am numb and I have tried so hard to move on but I guess that you will never get over the first person you ever loved. I hope that he never loses or forgets our memories because when I am old and dying he is the one that I am going to remember and ask to see. He will always haunt my mind. He ficed me and than broke me even worst than I was in the first place.
