Matthew Good lyrics

Requiem For Rosemary

he's been in that room for seven days
kneeling beside that bed
waiting for her to come back to him
and the candle in the window
to guide her through the garden is growing dim

it’s growing dim
and we have taken up residence
on the other side of the door
sitting on the floor playing blackjack with the hours
wilting these sympathy flowers
my guitar casts a shadow
and these words no longer carry
this requiem for rosemary

this requiem for rosemary

this requiem for rosemary

it grows quiet
it goes deeper than the night
lost alone, waiting for the telephone
he is waiting for the telephone
and the candle in the window is to guide her through the garden
growing dim
she comes back

but not to him
but still the music plays
they dance
and the music plays
but these words no longer carry
these words no longer carry

this requiem for rosemary

this requiem for rosemary

this requiem for rosemary

this requiem for rosemary

she is dancing around the moon
and he is dancing around the room

dancing around the room
she is dancing around the moon
and he is dancing around the room

dancing around the room
she is dancing around the moon
and I am dancing around the room

and I’m dancing around the room

dancing

dancing

she is dancing around the moon
and he is dancing around the room

we are dancing around the room
let the music play, let the music play

caught you laughing
