Lyrics

A shadeless light in a rented room,
The day is long as I wait for you
The hours go by, till the darkness calls,
I’m a prisoner here in between these walls.
I no longer refuse to see
That the strength in you was the need in me
And now you say we must end this soon
You’re afraid, somebody knows.

Black as the rose, black as the sky,
Black as the look, that’s in your eyes,
Black as the rose, folding to dust,
Empty of words, willing to trust.
Black as the rose.

The temple’s stained, and its glories past,
This book of life has been made of glass,
So here we are for the last goodbye,
There’s no final thoughts, there’s no tears to cry.
You must do what you feel you must,
Though I hope you’ll stay, I believe you’re lost,
So the stillness becomes the noise,
And the passion is now the pride.

Black as the rose, black as the sky,
Black as the look, that’s in your eyes,
Black as the rose, folding to dust,
Empty of words, willing to trust.
Black as the rose.

Close the door, close your eyes, close your mind
Let this moment last for ever.
Picture me, picture you, final take of us two,
Let me be remembered........

Black as the rose, black as the sky,
Black as the look, that’s in your eyes,
Black as the rose, folding to dust,
Empty of words, willing to trust.
Black as the rose.
