Paroles de Blood-Red Roses

Talk to me, child of islands
With your gull's wide-open stare
And the colder wind that ruffles up your hair
Talk to me
I was free, free and aimless
I was floating like a cloud
Like a message tossed in the ebb-tide of the crowd
Lost at sea: that was me
AND YOU GAVE ME THE BLOOD-RED ROSES
THAT GROW WHERE THE LONELY MEET
AND I CARRIED THE DYING ROSES
THEY SMELT SO SWEET
SO SHARP AND SWEET
I was wild, you were wilder
You were free to leave this land
But it clung to you like a gold ring to your hand
Divide the sky, you and I
