Luscious Jackson – Roses Fade lyrics
With Precious scents of summer time
The lightning bugs said you were mine--
When I asked you to be kind
I found I had to wait in line--
You told me tales of love gone wrong
But you were paid to sing a long--
I knew the only lover's song
I knew the only lover's song--

I watched your roses fade away
The wings came off your back today--
And I saw all the truth behind
The pretty pictures in my mind--

You angel came a floating down
Your halo it fell to the the ground--
The flies swarming into town
And starting circling round and round--
There was a body lyin' there
And whose it was I didn't care--
The prophet aly upon the stair(?)
The funeral was common fare--
