Wild Roses. Of Monsters and Men


Wild roses on a bed of leaves in the month of May
I think I wrote my own pain
Oh, don’t you?
Down by the creek, I couldn’t sleep so I followed a feeling
Sounds like the vines, they are breathing
And I’ve seen the way the seasons change when I just give it time
But I feel out of my mind all the time
In the night I’m wild eyed, and you got me now
Oh roses, they don’t mean a thing you don’t understand
But why don’t we full on pretend?
Oh, won’t you?
Before I closed my eyes I saw a moth in the sky
And I wish I could fly that high
Oh, don’t you?
A serpent on a bed of leaves in the month of May
What do you want me to say?
(Oh it sounds like, it sounds like, it sounds like, it sounds, oh)
You keep me still when all I feel is an endless direction
When I think I’m losing connection
I see you
In the night I’m wild eyed, and you got me now
Dim the lights, we’re wild eyed, and you got me now
Oh roses, they don’t mean a thing you don’t understand
But why don’t we full on pretend?
Oh, won’t you?
Before I closed my eyes I saw a moth in the sky
And I wish I could fly that high
Oh, don’t you?
In the night, we’re wild eyed, and you got me now
Dim the lights, we’re wild eyed, and you got me now
In the night, I’m wild eyed, and you got me now
