Rose, Large



 

This is a song of a man who is very far away from the one he loves and does what all Celtic men are not afraid to do-he cries secretly at night in the dark for the woman he longs for.

CHORUS

HELLO HOW ARE YOU MY LOVELY ROSE,
DO YOU MISS ME AS MUCH AS I MISS YOU,
HELLO HOW ARE YOU MY LOVELY ROSE,
THE PAIN OF MISSING YOU IT STILL GROWS.

VERSE 1

AND WHEN I WALK OUT EVERY DAY,
I LONG FOR THE LOVE THAT IS FAR AWAY,
YET THOUGH I SEEK I CANNOT FIND,
THE LOVE THAT STOLE MY HEART AND MIND.

VERSE 2

THEN WHEN SWEET FLOWERS PASS ME BY,
SOME OF THEM THEY HAVE YOUR EYES,
SOME SMILE AT ME THE WAY YOU DO,
OH HOW I WISH THAT IT WERE TRUE.

VERSE 3

AND AT THE END OF EVERY DAY,
WHEN THE LIGHT DOES FADE AWAY,
THIS MAN LAYS DOWN TO GENTLY SLEEP,
THIS MAN HAS EYES THAT SOFTLY WEEP.
