Dear Rosemary Lyrics
Now get away get away get away from me
I couldn't grow just living in the shadow
Where do you go when no one's following you?
You ran away ran away it was righ on cue
Shall I go on and on and...

It is about Rosemary Carroll, Courtney love's attorney, and how she lied to help Courtney Love get away with the murder of Kurt Cobain."Truth ain't gonna change the way you lie", "This was no ordinary lie". These lyrics are very obvious. Although not everything Grohl writes is about Nirvana, this one clearly is. Your welcome.

This song is about Courtney and Kurts attorney, Rosemary Caroll. She was the first person to say to Tom Grant it wasnt a suicide at all. The letter Tom Grant wrote to Rosemary Caroll at the time he was investigating Kurt's death had this words in the header: Dear Rosemary... This letter was about Tom Grant trying to convince Rosemary to keep helping him with the truth, but she suddenly stopped helping him and threatened Tom Grant with a offensive answer talking about putting her lawyers to make him stop. She was probably been threatened by Courtney Love to stop talking. Thats the truth, BELIEVE it or not.

It's abvious that it's about Rosemary Carroll. Maybe she has the answers for all our questions about Kurt's Death and "she get away".

Maybe it is about Rosemary Kennedy...read about her and what the Kennedys did to her and why. Then listen again and think twice. Maybe the song is some kind of flip-flop picture.

In my opinion it's about depression. How it can effect two lives, not just one.
And that's all I have to say about that.

I think the song is dealing with a case where someone fell in love with a hooker, who is trying to keep the secret of her 2nd life apart from her relationship. "living in the shadows" He might discovered some evidences and is able to understand her situation in parts: "false start..." But he's also warning: "Pick up the pieces" (of truth?) "coming down around you" , "youth ain't gonna change the way you die" (inside?) In the end he has to leave her to save himself

I think that this song is talking about the sacrifice that one makes for love.You care so much that person and you forgot care yourself.
Then you realize that she never cared of you.It hurts.You feel betrayed, used, and the inly thing that you can do to stop the bottom of the hole of pain its forgot it.

Not everything IS about Nirvana or Kurt, but I do think this is about Courtney, as Courtney really irritates Dave... And I think I heard somewhere he used to like her a lot.

My first impression was also that of Courtney and Kurt. Good song

Not everything Dave Grohl does is related to Kurt Cobain. The Foos have been popular for 15 years. Nirvana was popular for 2.

In my opinion it's about Courtney Love and the death of Curt Cobain.
