Track Name: Roses on My Grave
Roses on my grave,
Withered.
My headstone crumbles,
Forgotten.

Since the day I died,
You mourned for over a year.
I saw the way you cried.
The way you shed those tears.

You came to my grave.
Fresh roses every week.
A resurrection you craved.
Oh, you were so weak.

But as time flies by.
Your life got back on track.
Eventually you stopped to cry.
My headstone started to crack

Roses on my grave,
Withered.
My headstone crumbles,
Forgotten.

My grave you visit no more.
Past tense I have gotten.
Fresh roses nevermore.
I am forgotten.
Track Name: Headstone
Ancient ground, holy ground
Mist and fog, lifeless sound
On coffin stones, mourn ancient deeds
Long lost forgotten souls
An only child is fraught with mourning
On this day the sky is dawning
Does forgive an only child
Mother needs, now he mourns

On a headstone, so sad
Reminder, an epitaph
On a headstone, so sad
A young child doth cry
On a headstone, so sad
Reminder, an epitaph
On a headstone, so sad
A young child doth cry

Memories of mother
In clouds she flies evermore
Memories of mother
In clouds she flies evermore
Memories of mother
In clouds she flies evermore
Memories of mother
In clouds she flies evermore

To leave this place, return next dawn
As a thousand times before
To leave this place, return next dawn
As a thousand times before
To leave this place, return next dawn
As a thousand times before
To leave this place, return next dawn
As a thousand times before

On a headstone, so sad
Reminder, an epitaph
On a headstone, so sad
A young child doth cry
On a headstone, so sad
Reminder, an epitaph
On a headstone, so sad
A young child doth cry

Memories of mother
In clouds she flies evermore
Memories of mother
In clouds she flies evermore
Memories of mother
In clouds she flies evermore
Memories of mother
In clouds she flies evermore
