Roseberry Garden
words and music by C. Stewart (Jan 17, 2017)


We picked a rose or two
I fell in love with you
Butterflies photographed our kiss

You broke my heart in two
Walked off with someone new
Who knew it would end like this

Fingers of sunlight in Roseberry Garden
How long's it take for the cement to harden
Fingers of sunlight in Roseberry Garden

Angels saw you die
So did I
I sang this lullaby to you

Blood on my fingers
And blood on my shoes
I sang this lullaby of death to you

Fingers of sunlight in Roseberry Garden
How long's it take for the cement to harden
Fingers of sunlight in Roseberry Garden

Love dies in so many ways
There's so many shades of blue

Fingers of sunlight in Roseberry Garden
How long's it take for the cement to harden
Fingers of sunlight in Roseberry Garden

Who knew
Who knew it would end like this
Who knew
Who knew it would end like this

Calvin,

This is a crazily haunting tune, with some awesome lines. The "Hmmmm" at the end of the chorus is creepy, and adds to the mood. Well done and enjoyed the listen.

Calvin,

Very cool indeed. I just like how the words flow, I gave up years ago trying to understand what you really mean anyway. You are a "surreal lyrical fragment artist." I'm kidding you a bit, as I do get some of what you say. But if your style of lyrics or music for that matter were easily understood, it would lose it's appeal.....

(As far as how long it takes "cement" to harden--actually portland cement is an additive and incorrectly used to call concrete--"cement." As for how long, It depends on the portland cement/water ratio to the concrete mix & relative humidity along with ambient temperature--2-3 hours on an average summer day, slower if you add a "retarder" to the mix). Okay, I was a Decorative Concrete contractor for a few years.

Hi Calvin,

The soft "almost" country sound you get here reminds me of Lambchop a bit, my favorite Nashville based Indie band.

I love the atonal soundtrack-y bits as well. You seem to religiously go with your lyrics, letting the music take you where they lead, and I love the results.

Mike

Yep. Sounds like you, Calvin.

Loved this Calvin, the way the music is sad and inviting and the words raise the hair on the back of your neck, but it is compelling and makes me want to read it over again. I think you have made something special, I agree with the "Poe" comparison, it is beautiful in a scary way.....I had to go looking for this, it came on after a song of yours I was listening to and I must say, this is one of my favorites of yours!

Just Plain Quotes
"Do not endeavor to be the smartest kid in a dumb class. Instead, you are better off being the dumbest kid in the smartest class, where you will be challenged and you will learn. If you aren't growing, you are dying." -Brian Austin Whitney
