about

I could have sworn she mouthed the word “baby” to me when I paid my bill but I might have been dreaming from eating that spicy chocolate. I once had a dog named Negra and I now have one named Rose so maybe it’s just a song about puppy love.

lyrics

You touch a dark spot on my heart
black rose
It wasn’t formed to pull apart
No one knows
how I love you


Life is cheap
Troubles run so deep
How do you sleep
with the company you keep
If you never know
if you’re moving too fast or too slow
which feelings you may outgrow
or which directions to follow


If you were mine
in another space & time
I could read between the lines
& you could read my mind
but I’m on an island
where I must remain silent
in peace & quiet
apart from a world so loud & so violent


Now roses are black
I don’t want any change back
I don’t care if i lose track
what I hope to attract
I’m in it for good
I’d be there with you if i could
if you tell me you would
let me drive into your neighborhood
