Chris de Burgh - Rose of England
Tekst en muziek: Chris de Burgh
(2004)






Hear my voice and listen well
And the story I will tell
How duty brought a broken heart
And why a love so strong
Must fall apart



She was lovely, she was fine
Daughter of a royal line
He, no equal, but for them
It mattered little
For they were in love



Rose of England, sweet and fair
Shining with the sun
Rose of England, have a care
For where the thorn is
There the blood will run



Oh my heart, oh my heart



Through the summer days and nights
Stolen kisses and delights
Would thrill their hearts and fill their dreams
With all emotions
That true love can bring



But black of mourning came one day
When her sister passed away
And many said on bended knee
She has gone
And you must be our Queen



Rose of England, sweet and fair
Shining with the sun
Rose of England, have a care
For where the thorn is
There the blood will run



Oh my heart, oh my heart



To the abbey she did ride
With her lover by her side
When they heard the church bells ring
She was Queen
And one day he’d be King



But men of malice, men of hate
Protesting to her chambers came
“A foreign prince will have your hand
For he’ll bring peace
And riches to our land”



She said: “Do you tell me that I cannot
Wed the one I love
Do you tell me that I am not
Mistress of my heart”



Oh oh, ohohohoh



So with heavy weight of life
She kissed her lover one last time
“This land I wed and no man comes
For if I cannot have you
I’ll have none”



Rose of England, sweet and fair
Shining with the sun
Rose of England have a care
For where the thorn is
There the blood will run



Oh my heart, oh my heart



Oh oh, ohohohoh
