I saw her standing near an apple tree, a tear in her eye

It almost made me question my whole life

Her heart was tender and full of passion it could make me scream

Burning through me like a monk in war-filled streets

It was September, but it felt like winter come too soon

In her eyes as she glanced up at me

Her look was icy, but it made me burn, like ashes in an aging urn,

I almost spoke, but then I couldn't breathe

If everyone would wake up

And stop pretending they are

Something better than they'll ever be than maybe I could

Put it all together and maybe solve this riddle

But when everyday has set its sun, we're just flesh and bone

It took me ten years and a thousand tears to forget her face

It haunted every particle in me

Her name was Rose it came to me, like maybe we were meant to be

But no matter, cause everything is gone

And by some strange coincidence I walked by that tree

And there was Rose I took her as my wife

But as the days made us grow old, our bodies shriveled up, turned cold

It was then that we knew we must end our lives

If everyone would wake up

And stop pretending they are

Something better than they'll ever be than maybe I could

Put it all together and maybe solve this riddle

But when everyday has set its sun, we're just flesh and bone

I heard the crows circling above my head at dawn,

that day would turn to be my very last

I took my love into my shaky hands, and we exchanged our grave demands, and fell asleep, if only just to dream

The sun came up as if nothing had passed that night

The world could always turn the other way

And there was no one to forget my face, I never felt good on this place, this place, where no one heard my cries

If everyone would wake up

And stop pretending they are

Something better than they'll ever be than maybe could have

Stayed alive a little to try to solve this riddle

But when everyday has set its sun, we're just flesh and bone
