"Blossom" as written by and Ryan Adams....
Without anyone to love you
What will you blossom into?
Without anyone to hold you
How will you grow?

And in the Wildwood trees
The wild wind blows
And the nighttime crushes the hurricane rose
And with no one to care for you
Who knows

Blossom for me rose
You're the picture of my love
Blossom for me rose
Stretch out underneath the stars
And when tomorrow comes
I will hold you up
Little blossom, shining in the sun

Without any place to go to
How will your soul return to
Without anyone to keep you
Where will you go

And in the shadows of the past
Where you're spinning so fast
It's hard to see it coming
And it never lasts
And with nothing to judge your life by
How will you know

Blossom for me rose
You're the picture of my life
Blossom for me rose
Stretch out underneath the stars
And when tomorrow comes
I will hold you up
Little blossom, shining in the sun

Without anyone to love you
What will you blossom into
Without anyone to hold you
How will you grow

    General Commenti just played this song for my sister for the first time last night. I told her it was kind of sad. The first two lines especially. Good song for a sad, rainy day.

    General Comment"I've got this one spirit that's laying roses on me. Roses, roses, can't get enough of those bloody roses. The rose is the most prominent image in the human brain, as to delicacy, beauty, short-livedness, thorniness. It's a whole. There is no better allegory for, dare I say it, life, than roses." - Robert Hunter

    this is another sweet one off of Cold Roses. the whole album is more or less a tribute to the musical genius of the grateful dead, and seeing as robert hunter's most common muse was the rose it's only logical that ryan adams would do the same in the tribute.

    roses are beautiful but when you grow flowers you need to tend them otherwise they'll get raggedy unkempt. people are like that, too - most things are like that.
