Roses for the Dead - Funeral for a Friend

Roses for the Dead

Hours
emo rock post-hardcore screamo emocore


Matt Davies wrote this song about the death of one of his close friends. In an issue of Kerrang! magazine in an interview he said he saw everyone else grieving and felt weird because he wasn't crying, and he just took everything in.


Funeral for a Friend was a post-hardcore band from Wales. They formed in 2001 as a sextet called January Thirst. This did not last long, and in 2002 Funeral for a Friend recorded their debut EP Between Order And Model with their original 6-piece line up. After having been together for just a few months, the band changed their line up and subsequently signed a deal with Warner Brothers records for whom they recorded their second EP Four Ways To Scream Your Name.

Roses for the Dead - Funeral for a Friend

Just to say we're sorry
For the black eyes and bleeding lips
When it's hard to forget
How many lies we told,
Or how we'd grow
Before I said goodbye
So lets scrape our knees on the playground

It's not your fault
You feel okay,
It's too late in the day
It's not your fault,
You feel betrayed,
And can't come out to play

I never listened to a word,
You never said,
I never listened to a word,
You never said,

Wasting the hours now,
We're all suckers for tragedies,
We'll start this over again,
And you bring us to our knees,

As sunrise comes,
And the story will sell
A few hundred papers,
So we'll follow you up!

It's not your fault
You feel okay,
It's too late in the day
It's not your fault,
You feel betrayed,
And can't come out to play

I never listened to a word,
You never said,
I never listened to a word,
You never said,

So raise your hands up high,
And let this rain pour on,
So raise your hands up high,
And Wash us away,

Like innocence and childbirth
You look just like your mother,
And you look just like your father

Forgive him our father,
Your son is smiling
So lay roses around you...
