lyrics

I found some photos I'd put away--
the other day,
It seems a thousand years ago now

I laid them out on the floor to view
I thought of you
And the things you'd said about me

I saw it there in the photograph
A second glance
Showed deception that had once grown

In the shadow of a dead rose

So now it's painfully clear to me
How did I miss
Those not-so-subtle innuendoes?

I saw it all in the photograph
And now I laugh
Although it's really not that funny

How a person can be deceived
I couldn't believe
But sometimes that's how things go

In the shadow of a dead rose

I couldn't stop the rain from pouring down
That naive teenage boy
How hard he tried
But it was you the whole time

I only saw what I wanted to
I trusted you
But it makes a lot more sense to me now

The story line had a foregone end
You said you were just friends,
C'mon, I'm really not that stupid

The evidence is the photograph
I'm free at last
From the guilt I felt I once owned

And from the shadow of a dead rose

Kevin White

After a stint in Special Ops, working covertly in the world's most dangerous hot spots, a chance meeting with a Zulu medicine man launched an interest in music.

For the healing power of song, as evidenced by Coca Cola's "We'd like to teach the world to sing", followed up by Pepsi's "The world sings out of tune", is instrumental-not in a literal sense, but a musical one; literally. Please enjoy.
