Roses (Asrai)

She puts on her makeup And roses in her hair She smiles to the face in front of her And tries to be sincere Tomorrow seems so far away When the moon shines silver light Shines her silver light That blazes through the night Never to last. Never would there be Another question to ask Forgotten in a dying flame She opens her heart up In hope of better times A sliver of a trust betrayed Of old, forgotten rhymes Her eyes, they cast their twisted spells And thorns tear through her dreams Petals falling hopelessly With nothings as it seems Never to last. Never would there be Another question to ask Forgotten in a dying flame Questions never been asked In the silence of the night And even when she tries to talk I forget, I forget myself Escape in lonely stories Too sad for her to tell No one there to comfort her She sighs, “It’s just as well…” Never to last. Never would there be Another question to ask Forgotten in a dying flame Never meant to last Never would there be Another question to ask Forgotten in a dying flame
