Roses for the Dead Lyrics

Play "Roses for the Dead"
on Amazon Music

Just to say we're sorry,
For the black eyes and bleeding lips.
And it's hard to forget
How many lies we've told.

Or how old we'd grow,
Before I said goodbye.
So let's scrape our knees on the playground.

It's not your fault,
You feel...

    A few years ago in Kerrang magazine matt davies explains that he wrote this song because when a close friend dies he sees every one grieving but he himself didn't feel he was, so he wrote this song as a tribute.

    he said *a heavy song, but not in the way metal is typically considered to be "heavy" . This is about the death of close friends; I saw my friends and family all grieving but I didn't know how to react. I felt odd because I wasn't crying, I sat there and took it all in. I wanted to pay tribute to the memory of those people, who I missed so much, and to express that*
