  • You said "Come on, let's go down that Yellow Brick Road"
    But that path was primrose and led back to black and white
    And now I know, since that day you chose to let me know
    My heart's been tangled with thorns that choke the light

    Oh, here I go, collecting roses to me from you
    Oh, here I go, a dozen red for every wound
    Oh, now I stop and smell the roses when they're blue

    Gonna find my way, break the lock on the Emerald City gates
    It could be simple, but we're only half-awake
    I feel the pain set in when I think of you and grip the stems
    I feel my head begin to spin, I'm not alright

    Oh, here I go, collecting roses to me from you
    Oh, here I go, a dozen red for every wound
    Oh, now I stop and smell the roses when they're blue

    When they're blue
    Let go of the stems, free to bloom again
    Let go of the stems, free to bloom again

    Here I go, collecting roses to me from you
    Oh, here I go, a dozen red for every wound
    Oh, now I stop and smell the roses when they're blue

    (Stop, stop, stop) Let go of the stems, free to bloom again
    (Stop, stop, stop) Free to bloom again when they're blue Writer/s: JAMES CULPEPPER, JARED CHRISTOPHER HARTMANN, KIRKPATRICK SEALS, KRISTEN LYNN MAY, SAMEER BHATTACHARYA
