lyrics

I lay on my back with the sun in my eyes;
Soon I will know what no living man knows.
All of my life’s been a fight against lies,
Death brings the truth, now it’s my turn to know.

Send my mother a lock of my hair,
Send my father the watch that he gave me.
Tell my brother to follow me if he dare,
Tell them I’m lost now and no-one can save me.
Remember, remember,
Send my love little yellow roses.

My father told me that all men were equal,
Whatever colour, religion or land;
Taught me to fight for the things I believed in
This I have done with a gun in my hand.

I met my love in a garden of roses,
She pricked her finger, how sharp the thorn grows.
We made a promise that ’til death it did part us
We’d never look on that wild yellow rose.
