"Black Rose Petals Dying"

I sit and cry
Because I'm about to die
Well, why open your eyes
Just to close them again?


Little girls,
Runnning on their bare feet
To avoid being beat
Into the night
Without any lullabies
Everything will fall
And there will be no more happy songs


Black rose petals dying
And everyone is crying
Well, why should you live
Just to give
Everything you've got
And to suffer pain you never bought


Well, why have a lover
When they could just break your heart
I'm sorry, but to me it
Just doesen't seem very smart


Well, why be born
Just to learn
That life is pain
It drives me insane
When hearts are broke
And people are hurt
I suffer the same pain
And in return I gain
Nothing.


Black rose petals dying
And everyone is crying
Well, why should you live
Just to give
Everything you've got
And to suffer pain you never bought



Why, oh why are we born
When birth is doomed
To gloom?
Life is sadness,
Life is madness,
Life has little hapiness.


So, why, why, why?
We may never know,
We should just accept it so,
Smiles are fake
People you trust are sneaky snakes.


Black rose petals dying
And everyone is crying
Well, why should you live
Just to give
Everything you've got
And to suffer pain you never bought



Black rose petals dying
And everyone is crying
Well, why should you live
Just to give
Everything you've got
And to suffer pain you never bought



Black rose petals dying
And everyone is crying
Well, why should you live
Just to give
Everything you've got
And to suffer pain you never bought

I like the sadness being emitted from this song and don't get me wrong it's really great but how can black rose petals (aren't they already dead?) die? That's my only question. Over all it's really powerful and I like it!

thanks, but (just to explain it to you) the title means that even when something is gone, you still have memories, or maybe a little something to remember them (like a locket), but when you lose that, you have nothing. i actually wrote this about my grandma, she's about to die. :(
