Susan Kane: Listen

Black Roses

(Susan Kane)
November 19, 2012
Stephen Ray Kirkman

I got a man, and he don’t love me

Black roses over my door

I got a man, and he just don’t love me

Black roses over my door

 

There’s a river, river of darkness

I can see it in his eyes

With the distance of his kisses

There’s nothing left to die 

 

Chorus

 

Faded memories haunt the shadows

Of a doubt that come to rise

Faded memories haunt the shadows

Of a doubt that come to rise

Vows lay broken, sharp words spoken  

Two strangers come to life 

 

Chorus

 

If I surrender to things we said today

Maybe tomorrow I’ll see yesterday

 

Chorus
