[VERSE 1]
Dead rose, you were once so vibrant
As you stretched out towards the sun
And spread your pedals wide
To take it all inside
Dead rose, tried to keep you alive
But you drank the water dry
And now you're facing down
Your pedals scattered on the ground

[CHORUS 1]
But you grew so naturally at first
And so this natural death occurs
A stem in water never lasts as long
As roots planted in dirt
And although we have had our time
It hurts to watch you fade and die
What once was stunning and alive
Becomes so cold and dead inside
Dead rose, I don't love you anymore

[VERSE 2]
Dead rose, you're a symbol of the truth
Of the love we had for you
How all good things must end and with each death new life begins
Dead rose, how am I suppose to find
Something equally divine?
No matter where I go I plant the seeds but nothing grows

[CHORUS 2]
And you grew so naturally at first
And so this natural death occurs
A stem in water never lasts as long
As roots planted in dirt
And although we have had our time
It hurts to watch you fade and die
What once was stunning and alive
Becomes so cold and dead inside
How fleeting is love, how fleeting is life
When I came home and shut the door
I saw your last pedal hit the floor
And I was struck by something I'd never felt before
Dead rose, I don't love you any more

[BRIDGE]
We'll look back on the day
When the dead rose from the grave
No more sorrow and shame
The new body and name
Nothing perfect will die
No more tears in our eyes
No more worries and trials
We'll have faith like a child's

[ENDING]
When I come through that open door
I'll finally see you as you really are
And I'll be struck by something I'd never felt before
Dead rose I will love you forever more
Dead rose I will love you forever more
