lyrics

She was an artist because she said so
No one ever saw her paintings
She tried to be a mystery, she tried to be a ghost
Sad eyed Rose

She read The Bell Jar and A Room Of One’s Own
Yeah, she was literary
She was a poem in a book full of prose
Sad eyed Rose

There are mysteries in the shadows we’re not supposed to know
Words we’re not supposed to speak
We don’t go where everybody goes
Sad eyed Rose

She said goodbye and then said hello
She was somewhat distracted
By the feel of the sand that clung to her toes
Sad eyed Rose

There are mysteries in the shadows we’re not supposed to know
Words we’re not supposed to speak
She don’t go where everybody goes
Sad eyed Rose

Like a mummy unwrapped, like a sheep in wolf’s clothes
Like a photograph outside the darkroom
I melt in the glare of her secrets exposed
Sad eyed Rose

I’m a prisoner, I’m a fool I suppose
I guess I’m ordinary
‘Cause I believed there was more to the pose of
Sad eyed Rose
