Yellow petals...

I lay on my back with the sun in my eyes

Soon I shall know what no living man knows

All of my life's been a fight against lies

Death brings the truth, and it's my turn to know

  

Send my mother a lock of my hair

Send my father the watch that he gave me

Tell my brother to follow me if he dare

Tell them I'm lost now and no-one can save me

Remember Remember

Send my love little yellow roses

 

My father told me that all men are equal

Whatever colour, religion or land

He told me to fight for the things I believe in:

This I have done with a gun in my hand

  

Send my mother a lock of my hair

Send my father the watch that he gave me

Tell my brother to follow me if he dare

Tell them I'm lost now and no-one can save me

Remember Remember

Send my love little yellow roses

 

I met my love in a garden of roses

She pricked her finger - how sharp the thorn grows

We made a promise till death do part us

We'd never look on a wild yellow rose

  

Send my mother a lock of my hair

Send my father the watch that he gave me

Tell my brother to follow me if he dare

Tell them I'm lost now and no-one can save me

Remember Remember

Send my love little yellow roses...
