"The Blue Roses" as written by and Ryan Alan/kamerman Dunson....
Close the door and leave me inside.
I'll miss the fireworks burning in those eyes.
Remember the songs that we used to sing?
Come August I'll still be singing.
Don't be the one to fall out of line.
Watch the blue roses fall from your hands.
Remember summer when all had second chances?
Someday you'll see.
Come August, I'll still be singing.
Don't be the one to say goodbye.

I've gotta get out of here.
You're so cold.
I've gotta get out of here.

Someday those scribbled lines will be straight.
Conversations will never bare your name.

August came and left town
You're such a beautiful sound.
I remember the days when you used to call my name.
I was so blind to think you'd be the one.
Blue roses on her tongue.
You were a beautiful sound.
You were such a beautiful sound.

Don't be the one to fall out of line.
Don't be the one to say goodbye.

I've gotta get out of here.
You're so cold.
I've gotta get out of here.
It's what you wanted.

    General CommentI think its about a summer love ending. But the guy doesnt want it to end, and he thinks that maybe next summer they can continue what they had "Don't be the one to fall out of line. Don't be the one to say goodbye"

    Thats what I think it's about. I love it, another GREAT song by RotY

    The Blue Roses - This song is probably my favorite song on the cd... Our next cd will have more slower songs like this on it.. While i was living in Cleveland, TN i went thru alot of hard times.. There was this girl in Fl that ment alot to me named Summer... and i was still dating my highschool sweetheart... well this highschool sweetheart girl... was treating me bad.. she had a new group of friends... and when i was out touring there was this guy she was starting to hangout alot with... and everybody in my town called him disease paul... haha.. yeah it sucked.. anyways... knowing that thats going on.. i really wanted to just end things... but 4 years of dating... i hate change... im afraid of it... seriously... I was young a dumb.. never just dropping her.. and going with Summer.. till it was to late... i could of showed Summer alot more care if I just ended it with Jeneane (highschool sweetheart for you slow learners out there).. So anyways... i did end of dropping Jeneane and dating Summer for abit.. but ended up moving back home to NC and like all good things.. well most.. they come to a end.. and i wrote this song for Summer..
    "august ill still be singing" my birthday is in august... so that means every year....
    Alot of people think as Summer the month and thats cool!! i wrote it so you can have your own thoughts and feelings for this song! But listen to the song after reading what i said.. and a pretty cool story comes out of it. (oh and yes i date a girl now named Whitney the Great and shes the best, hehe shell prob read this)

    General CommentI agree that this song is about a summer romance ending, and I totally identify it after this summer!

    "Come August, I'll still be singing." shows that he didn't want the romance to end at the summer, but then the second half of the song is about him getting over her.

    After reading the blog though, I'm not sure if his anger is directed at the girl at home, or towards the Summer girl for ending their romance.

    Still an absolutely amazing song though, love it loads, makes me upset though!

    General CommentRyans explanation really doesnt make any sense.
    I think maybe hewas just trying to cover up what the songs really about.
    Or maybe he didn't write it?
