"Yellow Roses" as written by and Kenny/nichols Devine....
there he stands on the farm
with his eyes on a windmill
and his head goes round and round
like the hours of the night will

yellow roses maybe all he will bring you
but no night bird will sing the songs he'll sing you
so when he wants you you have to stay
you have to hold him it's the only way
it's the only way

and who knows where he hides
only somewhere inside him
it's the only place he's found
where no fences surround him

you might find him in the darkness kneeling
he's found no reason for this love he's feeling
so when he wants you now and again
don't let the time slip past you all in vain
all in vain

there he goes along the wall
catch him now before he falls
while he tries to break the chains
that bind what's gone to what remains

yellow roses may be all he will bring you
but no night bird will sing the songs he'll sing you
so when he wants you you have to stay
you have to hold him it's the only way
it's the only way

    General CommentThis song and also " sea of smiling ladies" are two of the most intellectual songs ever, the scenes brought by the lyrics are blurry and wide just as the tunes are
    but the tunes are probably among the most ten profound songs ever
