เนื้อเพลง lori mckenna – rose of jericho

โปรดรอ...

[verse 1]
he sits, still legs crossed
at the kitchen table, only lost
in his gin and tonic, and the smell
of afternoon cigarettes

[verse 2]
she’s mastering the way she dances
in between the sideways glances
words that would come in vivid colors
if she let them slip off of her lips

[verse 3]
generations handed down
blame the pain on times they live in
a modern version of his father now
wasting all the chances life will give him

[verse 4]
but in her way she’s done one better
coats are made for winter weather
neighbor kids play in the street
the sun sinks down below the backyard trees

[chorus 1]
there’s a cross on the side of the road
reflecting itself in a car window
where does love really go?
maybe no one knows, no one knows
but somewhere stuck inside
it’s too proud to die
the rose of jericho

[verse 5]
falling into old routines
that history deems worth repeating
prayers that seem to say themselves
self-help books on dusty shelves

[verse 6]
if everything is temporary
why should they care how it shines?
the simple truth in looks deceiving
are the blessings in disguise

[chorus 2]
there’s a picture they took long ago
in a white dress, black tuxedo
where does love really go?
maybe no one knows, maybe no one knows
but somewhere stuck inside
it’s too proud to die
the rose of jericho

[bridge]
the rose of jericho sits on a shelf
waiting to be watered by somebody else
but it can’t love you without a little help
’cause it don’t know how to love itself

[verse 7]
moonlight reaches bedroom windows
high above the town below
you can’t always count on rain
to water what you need to grow
