"From Roses" as written by and Christopher Mansfield....
Sometimes when I'm all alone
Well, I wonder if you're at home
Singing sad songs about breaking up.
And the memory of me is keeping you up
Next to him.

Love goes.
I'll never leave you again.
Love goes.
I'll never leave you again.
Love goes.
I'll never leave you again.
Love goes.
I'll never leave you again.

Sing me sweetly to sleep
So I can
Can remember my dreams
Falling slowly
Like leaves fall from trees.
Then I'll wake up there
On my praying knees again.

Love goes.
I'll never leave you again.
Love goes.
I'll never leave you again.
Love goes.
I'll never leave you again.
Love goes.

I'll never leave you again.

    General CommentObviously the singer broke up with a girl he loved.
    He's wondering if she's at all sad about it, if she ever thinks of him, if it keeps her up at night.

    Then, the part that kills you:
    Love goes,"I'll never leave you again."
    Love goes.
    "I'll never leave you again"?

    I picture it like that, with him remembering the awful luck with love he's had in the past, and when he decided to love again, he was ruined, just like he had been before. He feels like love is just some kind of sick prank that he keeps falling for. When you feel like love's going to stick around and actually work 'this time', it doesn't, and you're left with nothing but the memory and you questioning yourself as to why you ever thought to trust love again in the first place.

    "Sing me sweetly to sleep,
    so I can remember my dreams
    falling slowly, like leaves fall from trees,
    then I'll wake up there on my praying knees again."

    In this part, he's pretty bitter. He knows if he lets his mind wander, he will think about how everything fell apart, and this is so upsetting to him that he can't keep hoping and praying for the anguish to stop.

    Then the chorus.
