A Rose For Emily Lyrics

A Rose For Emily - The Zombies

Written by:R. Argent/C. White/R. Argent/C. White/H. Grundy/C. Blunstone

 

The summer is here at last

 

The sky is overcast

And no one brings a rose for Emily

 

She watches her flowers grow

While lovers come and go

To give each other roses from her tree

 

But not a rose for Emily

 

Emily Emily can't you see

There's nothing you can do

 

There's loving everywhere

But none for you

Her roses are fading now

 

She keeps her pride somehow

That's all she has protecting her from pain

 

And as the years go by

 

She will grow old and die

The roses in her garden fade away

 

Not one left for her grave

 

Not a rose for Emily

 

Emily Emily can't you see

There's nothing you can do

 

There's loving everywhere

But none for you

Her roses are fading now

 

She keeps her pride somehow

That's all she has protecting her from pain

 

And as the years go by

 

She will grow old and die

The roses in her garden fade away

 

Not one left for her grave

 

Not a rose for Emily
