"Dog Roses" as written by Toby Butler, Luke Ford, Daniel Liam Higgins, Liela Rosemary Sadie Louise Moss and Olly Betts....
I hope you stay in charge of your mouth
I hope you stay in charge of it
When nothing's fluid you drink yourself through it
Outside you draw, draw yourself

Feel the breeze, that's a real thing that touches your skin
But memories, well, they're not real

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
There's nothing there

Now can we visit your old house again?
I feel as though I've left instructions there
Could it be that you were so small that
The garage room, well, they've pulled it down

Oh, nothing's ruined 'cause we still have the picture
Of dog roses and stuff for the pyre

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Hey yeah, have you always slipped backwards?
Just now, I see you always slip backwards
Oh, you will you always slip backwards?
Just now, oh, you always slip

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
There's nothing there

    General CommentThis song is really exactly how I feel...
    It's a yearning to return to the first days of a relationship, when everything is new.

    General Commenti think that this song is about alcoholism, and the part where they visit the house, i think its like the person is trying to relive their past, and finding it through the alcohol.
