The Inmates – Dead Red Roses lyrics

As i walked out
She took me at my word
I`ll be gone when you get back
Was the last thing i heard

Empty spaces in the wardrobe
Snow white folded sheets
Dead red roses in the
Jar on the mantlepiece

A love that spawned
We thought could never die
But it burned itself right out
In the wink of an eye

And its so,that you dont miss
What you got till its gone
Dead red roses made me see
What i had done

Dead red roses,
Dead red roses
For the love that died
Was enshrined Dead red roses

She begged and she pleaded
Baby please stay
And i heard her start to cry
As i walked away

I should have turned around
Ohh but i kept right on
Dead red roses is all i have left
Now she has gone

Dead red roses,
Dead red roses
For the love that died
Was enshrined Dead red roses

At night,cold and dark
And i feel so alone
Seems theres a hole up in the sky
Where the sun was shown

When i close my eyes
I see her pretty face
When they open
Dead red roses are in her place

Dead red roses,
Dead red roses
For the love that died
Was enshrined Dead red roses

Dead red roses,
Dead red roses
For the love that died
Was enshrined Dead red roses
