Roses bend and break

Don't wait for me
I'll be gone too long
And I can't promise that
I'll write you a song.

Don't pull the trigger
You are never alone
You can call them if you want to
But I can never be with you.

And time is killing the both of us
The walls are built by our fathers
Angels are never meant to last
And all things inside just faltered.

I took your life without guilt
Thinking it's better for you
Blood overflowed with diamonds
I drowned slowly, slowly in you.
