A looking glass the window
Holds a better place
Through it I can see her
as she comes my way
I wonder does she wonder
Who left that rose for her that day
Somewhere in the distance
I can see her face
Flawed only with perfection
As she turns I say
So did you like the rose that I left for you that day
Now all I have is a drawer full of photographs
Of you and I
That we'll never take
I know I'll never forget her
She'll be my glass rose until I say
So this is how it ends
how it never begins
so this is how it ends with us.
now all I have is a drawer full of photographs
of you and I
that we'll never take
I know I'll never forget her
She'll be my glass rose until I say.

    General CommentGlassrose is seriously a tough song to ignore in that it has one of the coolest openings ever. Its a straight-through hard-rock kick in the head identifying time spent driving's signature technique of pounding your ears with clean distortion and bringing you right back into the realm of calm acoustics. As always, time spent driving suceeds in making an already kickin' song better by adjusting the mid-song breakdown with such honesty and bringing the listener right back with a chorus full of live and depth. The piano only intensifies the process by adding an eerie and signature sound to glass rose. Unique and a well-done job once again.Word.

    ahhh, wow. this reminds me of something i wrote a few months back. but just not as good..because how can anyone compare to the writings of this guy. sheesh. this is one of tsd's best, i believe. mhm. so now i have to listen to it. great intro, indeed. however, "here with you" is my favorite for intros.
