Blue Roses

Album: Between The Stars (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Kristen May sings here about about the pain of losing someone. "We can become so wrapped up in our experience with that person that it's almost impossible to move on," she explained to Artist Direct. "We become trapped, holding on to what has already died. This song is about trying to find the strength to move past the pain and start anew."
