all the roses

from The Kid Strays by BD Harrington



ALL THE ROSES///Here comes a man/With his conscience in his hands/Now this river’s frozen over/You said that I could be the skin/and you will be the scorpion/But who’s gonna pray for us whores/of the long shot/all the roses/all the roses/all the roses/I saw her wave from the gate/As I mouthed the words: don’t leave me/But in my heart I knew it was much too late/But the darkness it will be cracked/And I’m holding nothing back tonight/Casting all consolers into the blade/I fixed myself to climb/To justify these rhymes/But the blood on your lip/was it yours or was it mine?/On a brandy-coloured horse/I rode along her furthest shores/Undressing at the alter/Was the most I could ever give her/and the saw-toothed operators/I was impervious to their touch/all the roses/all the roses/all the roses whisper, boy/You gotta let her go.


from The Kid Strays, released April 7, 2010
