Wild Roses

Album: Fever Dream (2019)
  • Wild roses on a bed of leaves in the month of May
    I think I wrote my own pain
    Oh, don't you?

    Down by the creek, I couldn't sleep so I followed a feeling
    Sounds like the vines, they are breathing
    (Oh it sounds like, it sounds like, it sounds like, it sounds, oh)

    And I've seen the way the seasons change when I just give it time
    But I feel out of my mind all the time
    In the night I'm wild eyed, and you got me now

    Oh roses, they don't mean a thing you don't understand
    But why don't we full on pretend?
    Oh, won't you?
    Before I closed my eyes I saw a moth in the sky
    And I wish I could fly that high
    Oh, don't you?

    A serpent on a bed of leaves in the month of May
    What do you want me to say?
    (Oh it sounds like, it sounds like, it sounds like, it sounds, oh)
    You keep me still when all I feel is an endless direction
    When I think I'm losing connection
    I see you

    In the night I'm wild eyed, and you got me now
    Dim the lights, we're wild eyed, and you got me now

    Oh roses, they don't mean a thing you don't understand
    But why don't we full on pretend?
    Oh, won't you?
    Before I closed my eyes I saw a moth in the sky
    And I wish I could fly that high
    Oh, don't you?
    Oh, don't you?
    Oh, don't you?

    In the night, we're wild eyed, and you got me now
    Dim the lights, we're wild eyed, and you got me now

    In the night, I'm wild eyed, and you got me now Writer/s: Nanna Bryndis Hilmarsdottir, Ragnar Thorhallsson
