black rose lyrics – trapt

i saw you in the garden, i wanted you so much
i really thought that you were different, oh, i couldn’t get enough
i tried to save you from yourself, i felt every high and low
but the lows have drowned the highs away now there’s nowhere else to go

[bridge:]
black rose your th*rns are cutting into me for the last time
black rose i watched your petals wilt away i couldn’t bring you back to life

[chorus:]
you were always where the sun could never go,
i never wanted you to have to be alone
but i couldn’t find a way to help you grow,
black rose.

you never tell me how you feel and your moods – they always change
i really tried to make it real but you never had the faith
i tried to give you something good to take the pain away
i tried to make you understand – you don’t have to be this way

[bridge]

[chorus]

i’m not the one who hurt you
so why are you so scared
(i couldn’t save you) (you are who you are)
all that you’ve been put through couldn’t be repaired
(i couldn’t break through) (we’re too far apart)
i’m not the one who hurt, i’m the only one who cares
(i couldn’t save you) (you are who you are)
you’ll need someone to turn to
and i will not be there
(i couldn’t save you)

everytime i held you i knew that it would hurt
only through the pain i could find a way to learn

[bridge]

so wilt away couldn’t bring you back to life

[chorus]

i’m not the one who hurt you
so why are you so scared
(i couldn’t save you) (you are who you are)
all that you’ve been put through couldn’t be repaired
(i couldn’t break through) (we’re too far apart)
i’m not the one who hurt, i’m the only one who cares
(i couldn’t save you) (you are who you are)
you’ll need someone to turn to
and i will not be there
(i couldn’t save you)
