This song is a touching outpouring of emotion from Erik Shrody (a.k.a. Everlast) about his young daughter who suffers from cystic fibrosis. The name Sixty-Five Roses is apparently the way his daughter pronounces cystic...
It's been a bit of a while since I seen you smile
It's been too long baby what went wrong
Tell me how it got spoilt
Tell me when it went bad
How to get back to the times that we had

We're both young
And our spirits are old
Now we're just angry and we act like we're old
We can't even talk it out without one of us walking away

You were eighteen I just turned twenty nine
I was fresh out the coffin and
Girl you were so fine
The future was bright
The world, it seemed new
I was with some other woman
I was thinking of you
Knew how it hurts
Knew how it feels
Knew it how aches
Cos the heart never heals
We're so busy screaming that we don't hear the words that we say
Taking out lumps
Took a few blows
Hit a few bumps
Had our fair share of wounds
We tried to see good
Through all of the bad
Put on our smiles
Pretend we're not sad
Gotta be tough
Gotta be strong
Gotta be right
Can't afford to be wrong
It's hard to sing the blues
When you're hearing bad news everyday

We worry too much for one couple to bear
Hunger so much for one person to care
Fooling our family
We're fooling our friends
Pray that the pain and the frustration ends
Hope is a chance
Hope is a dream
Hope is a drug
Maybe hope's a vaccine

In the race against time I get down on my knees and I pray
Shout at the devil
I curse the lord
Offer them everything I can afford
I'd sell out my soul
I lighten to see
Tried to be righteous
Tried to believe
Prayed every prayer
Kicked all of my highs
For hours I'd stare at those beautiful eyes
All of my problems seem to be melting away
The smile on her face says daddy everything is okay

In the race against time I get down on my knees and I pray
