Roses Fade Lyrics

With Precious scents of summer time
the lightning bugs said you were mine--
When I asked you to be kind
I found i had to wait in line--
You told me tales of love gone wrong
but you were paid to sing a long--
I knew the only lover's song
I knew the only lover's song--

Chorus:
I watched your roses fade away
the wings came off your back today--
And I saw all the truth behind
the pretty pictures in my mind--

You angel came a floating down
your halo it fell to the the ground--
The flies swarming into town
and starting circling round and round--
There was a body lyin' there
and whose it was I didn't care--
The prophet aly upon the stair(?)
the funeral was common fare--

With Precious scents of summer time
the lightning bugs said you were mine--
When I asked you to be kind
