"Bells & Roses" as written by and Rosanne Cash....
Everything was mine
But it's long stripped away
I stand here naked as the stars
And silent as a grave

If you see who I really am
Or you still wanna stay
There's a danger in this love
And I wanna be that grave

Bells and roses
A sign of departure
But I love them just the same
Bells and roses
A sign of survival
On the door into this pain

Now I'll go
And if you say I must
But I rather let it go
The people I will never trust
And the things that I can't know
Kiss you until we turn to stone
I'll fight you till we're blind
But you love me when you're left alone
And it makes me wanna die

Bells and roses
If they wake up the senses to
Remind me who I am
Bells and roses
The gifts of the spirit shall not be squandered on one man

Everything was mine
But it's long stripped away
Will you love me if I'm naked
Or I'm silent as a grave
You don't have to answer now
But you might learn to pray
And I'll step down off this cross
Into a life that I can change

Bells and roses
They fill up the silence
In the place where he once laid
Bells and roses
A sign of survival
And the price I had to pay

Bells and roses

Bells and roses
