"Roses On My Grave" as written by and Tobin Esperance David Buckner....
It feels like I'm looking at life
Through a telescope because I'm so high
The ground never seemed so far away
Truth shall be told one day
I'll be under ground one day

I've got a woman that'll putt roses on my grave
I've got a woman that'll putt roses on my grave
Roses on my grave

Feels like I'm looking at life
A telescope because I'm so high
And the ground never seemed so far away
Truth shall be told one day
I'll be under ground one day

I've got a woman that'll putt roses on my grave
I've got a woman that'll putt roses on my grave
I've got a woman that'll putt roses on my grave
I've got a woman that'll putt roses on my grave
Roses on my grave

Don't forget me
Don't forget me
Please forgive me
Don't forget me

It's my redemption
Time for redemption
It's my redemption
Time for redemption

I'll see you on the other side
I'm waiting on the other side
I'll see you on the other side
I'm waiting on the other side

    It feels like I'm looking at life
    Through a telescope because I'm so high
    The ground never seemed so far away
    Truth shall be told one day
    I'll be under ground one day

    I've got a WOMAN that'll put roses on my grave (x2)
    Roses on my grave

    Feels like I'm looking at life
    Through a telescope because I'm so high
    The ground never seemed so far away
    Truth shall be told one day
    I'll be under ground one day

    I've got a WOMAN that'll put roses on my grave (x4)
    Roses on my grave

    Don't forget me
    Don't forget me
    Please forgive me
    Don't forget me

    It's my redemption, time for redemption
    Time for redemption, it's my redemption
    It's my redemption, time for redemption
    Time for redemption

    I'll see you on the other side
    I'm waiting on the other side
    I'll see you on the other side
    I'm waiting on the other side

    I agree, this song is definetely one of the best, if not the best, song on Paramour Sessions. The orchestra sound behind the lyrics has so much power and emotion. It's amazing to listen to at the highest volume! =D

    General CommentThat's what it says in the lyrics... I like this song, it's not one of my favorites... It's definately a different sound for P. Roach... This entire album has been, but they're good as ever.

    General CommentNot my favorite song off the album. It's not terrible or anything but it just wasn't as catchy as most of the other songs. What did the lyrics say instead of woman before they were changed? It's kinda hard to mess is up because he says it pretty clearly.

    General CommentThis is a great song, but what about the line where he says, "I've got a WOMAN that'll put roses on my grave". Shouldn't it be "who'll" and not "that'll"?

    I mean, I suppose he could be implying just the fact that he has a woman will put roses on his grave, but wouldn't it makes sense to imply that he has a woman who would PUT roses on his grave? I dunno just seems a little off to me.
