Red Like Roses Part II

1 year ago

hmmm....well, it seemed that people really liked "Red Like Roses" from the first RWBY preview trailer, but I saw a lot of comments that people wished there were more vocals. And I agreed!! So, when I had the chance to slip another song into episode 8, I decided to try to follow up on that original thought.

Despite my previous statements, we've decided to release the song on iTunes (etc) this week. Should be there in a few days, I'll post links when they are up.

**The version we'll release this week is the one from the episode, so it is NOT the full version of the song (believe me--it's not done yet). The full version will be on the CD which will be available in October.

We are so glad you like the song, and we truly appreciate your kind comments smiley12.gif . This is the first song where Casey and I really collaborated on the lyrics.



Red Like Roses Part II

i couldn't take it couldn't stand another minute
couldn't bear another day without you in it
all of the joy that I had known for my life
was stripped away from me the minute that you died

to have you in my life was all i ever wanted
but now without you I'm a soul forever haunted
can't help but feel that i had taken you for granted
no way in hell that i can ever comprehend this

i wasn't dreaming when they told me you were gone
i was wide awake and feeling that they had to be wrong
how could you leave me when you swore that you would stay
now i'm trapped inside a nightmare every single f'ing day

it's like a movie but there's not a happy ending
every scene fades black and there's no pretending
this little fairy tale doesn't seem to end well
theres no knight in shining armor who will wake me from the spell


i know you didn't plan this
you tried to do what's right
but in the middle of this madness
i'm the one you left to win this fight

red like roses
fills my head with dreams and finds me
always closer
to the emptiness and sadness
that has come to take the place of you

    You forgot the part "bigger sacrifice for you"!

      There's probably another journal with the full lyrics--this was just the short version that was in the episode.

    I'm not really at liberty to discuss this, but right now there's a really chubby squirrel eating bird food on my back porch :) I thought you should know!

    I would like to inquire, if I may, as to how closely you also worked with Monty, Miles and Kerry when forming the lyrics to the songs of RWBY, specifically though the lyrics to THIS song (Or the full version, anyways).

    I ask because there are some obviously big plot elements to RWBY IN the song (Of which I won't go into detail here for those who haven't caught on already ;3) and so I'm curious to know just how telling the words really are in terms of the canon.
    (Especially since there was a little mix-up back in RvB Season 1 when Nico's song "Girl Named Tex" named Tex as Beth and her name was later revealed to be Allison :P)

      Yeah, you're still waiting. smiley0.gif

      I'm not done, you'll hear a huge sigh of relief when I am! Every song has to be as perfect as I can make it. There's a ton of stuff on here, I'm working every day, I promise.

    I love all the RWBY music. This latest has been added to my writing playlist, which also doubles as my commute playlist and work playlist. Though I will say, the lyrics are a tad worrisome if this is Ruby's song. Is it a future person she speaks of or someone from her past?
