There is a rose in the Devil's garden
In shadow it grows alone
Many things are dangerous now
In this garden we call home

Careful as you make your way
Some things are poison to the touch
You've spent your life here in this place now
You long to run away so much

My love it is a black rose
my love it is a black rose
Held out to you by hand of fate
held by the hand of fate now
And as this dark romance grows
It's not from the sun, but the starlight that's so far away
Above the Devil's garden

The fertile soil of poisoned hearts
Fed by tears and nighttime rain
Under Transylvanian moon
Grows the flower bred from pain

Death is pure - life is not
So ask yourself, what do you want?
As for me, well, I want you you
So pick the black rose, and let its thorns cut you

My love it is a black rose
my love it is a black rose
Held out to you by hand of fate
held by the hand of fate now
And as this dark romance grows
It's not from the sun, but the starlight that's so far away
Above the Devil's garden

Your love it is a black rose
my love it is a black rose
Held out to you by a hand of fate
held by the hand of fate now
And as this dark romance grows
It's not from the sun, but the starlight that's so far away
Above the Devil's garden

    General Commentum... this is probably my favorite song on the album and when i read the lyrics that are posted, i noticed there are a ton of mistakes, so i wanted to post the correct version:

    There is a rose in the Devil's garden
    In shadow it grows alone
    Many things are dangerous now ~now~
    In this garden we call home

    Careful as you make your way~
    Some things are poison to the touch
    You've spent your life here in this place now ~now~
    You long to run away so much

    My love it is a black rose
    ~my love it is a black rose~
    Held out to you by hand of fate
    ~held by the hand of fate now~
    And as this dark romance grows....
    It's not from the sun, but the starlight that's so far away~
    Above the Devil's garden

    The fertile soil of poisoned hearts
    Fed by tears and nighttime rain
    Under Transylvanian moon ~moon~
    Grows the flower bred from pain

    Death is pure - life is not~
    So ask yourself, what do you want?
    As for me, well, I want you ~you~
    So pick the black rose, and let its thorns cut you

    My love it is a black rose
    ~my love it is a black rose~
    Held out to you by hand of fate
    ~held by the hand of fate now~
    And as this dark romance grows....
    It's not from the sun, but the starlight that's so far away~
    Above the Devil's garden

    Your love it is a black rose
    ~my love it is a black rose~
    Held out to you by a hand of fate
    ~held by the hand of fate now~
    And as this dark romance grows....
    It's not from the sun, but the starlight that's so far away~
    Above the Devil's garden

    General CommentOh, the video is so great! It matches the song perfectly. It sounds like this song is about corrupt love, and I absolutely adore it.

    General CommentI liked this song right of the bat, just like all of TA's songs. It never had to grow on me, especially not this one. I listened to it over and over when I got it.

    I think it's about his passion for the night, hating the sung, and such dark characteristics therefore making his love almost like a black rose. I don't know him personally, so I'm sure they're may be other things that make cause him to call his love a 'black rose' but those are my reasons. It being in the 'devil's garden' adds to the imagery and whole dark appraoch to his side of love.

    I believe he is also stating that you should be careful becuase he is this way. It also sounds like their is someone he loves and wants to have love him back, hence the 'so pick the black rose and let it thorns cut you' line. And, becuase his love is 'black', his love will cut this other person in a way. Not literally obviously, but in a deep emotional way or something like that.

    Anyway, that's what I think of when I hear this song. Very nice.

    General CommentTHIS SONG IS SO CLOSE TO AND MEANINGFUL TO ME I HAVE TO WRITE IN CAPS.THIS SONG WAS DEDICATED TO ME BUT I'M NOT EXACTLY PROUD, BECAUSE IT'S ABOUT WELL... LETS PUTT IT THIS WAY.I AM KNOWN TO BE A "HEART BREAKER"TO ANY AND EVERY GIRL I'VE DATED.I'VE TORN SO MANY HEART I CAN MAKE A COLLECTION IF I SEWD THEM ALL TOGETHER.BUT I DON'T DO THIS ON PURPOSE, MY HEART HAS BEEN TORN BY MY INPURPOSE ACTIONS."The fertile soil of poisoned hearts
    Fed by tears and nighttime rain
    Under Transylvanian moon ~moon~
    Grows the flower bred from pain"
    BUT THERE IS A PERSON WHO HAS BEEN CUT BY MY BLACK ROSE AND STILL STUCK AROUND.THIS SONG IS SO INDEPT THAT IT'S HARD TO DESCRIBE EXACTLYYOU WOULD JUST HAVE TO KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO HAVE A ROSE(HEART) TURN BLACK AND STILL BE LOVED COMPLETLY FAITHFULLY.

    "My love it is a Black Rose"
    And only someone with a
    hand as soft as an angel,
    but as cursed as a witch,
    can sore their hand with red
    and still see it's beauty
    can pick it,
