​White Rose

This song is by Freakwater and appears on the album Old Paint (1995).

You were waiting for your chance, it wasn't coming

You were waiting for your chance, it finally came

Did they catch you standing still, were you thinking about running

Did they know you were the ones who hated evil more than pain

Just an old photograph left to show

White roses fall in the snow

Bursting into flower red roses grow

Where white roses lay broken in the snow

You could have lived to be old without trying

Just your children to remember your name

Beautiful flowers are beautiful dying

When you died for true love you didn't die in vain

Just an old photograph left to show

White roses fall in the snow

Bursting into flower red roses grow

Where white roses lay broken in the snow

So easily you make me cry

Like pouring rain tearsdrops fall from my eyes

But there's no virtue in crying and no virtue in trying

To deny I wouldn't stand by the tracks and never see the trains

Just an old photograph left to show

White roses fall in the snow

Bursting into flower red roses grow

Where white roses lay broken in the snow
