I laid a rosebud on your grave

You were the one I tried my all to save
I wish that you were here to hold my hand
But you are not so I must understand
Tonight I laid a rosebud on your grave
      My friends have said that I’ve been very brave
      To stand the loss but never shed a tear
      I cannot cry the world would drown I fear
      Tonight I laid a rosebud on your grave
This is the only way I can behave
I stand because I dare not stop and fall
If I should fall I’ll never stand at all
Tonight I laid a rosebud on your grave
      You were the one I tried my all to save
      Tonight I laid a rosebud on your grave
