Rose by Dark Horse District

Dark Horse District has, perhaps, the coolest name for a band. Well, I like it anyway.  And I like the songs they’re churning out, even if they are only on EP’s right now.  My favorite song of theirs is “Never Was,” but following at a close second is “Rose,” which is an absolute spot-on, perfect wedding song.
Dark Horse District - song and lyrics for Rose
The meaning of “Rose” is fairly apparent and doesn’t really need to be broken down, except, perhaps, in the beginning… and just a little bit.  “One petals falls to the ground, never, never, never coming home. Followed by another round. And all those feeling all alone.”  The flower, a white rose (which, of course, resembles innocence and purity), has bloomed…and just as all of her other friends are leaving home…. represented by multiple petals falling…. these young adults have to find a new path in life.  And even with the excitement of leaving home, there’s a huge loneliness that comes with that.

There’s a lot going on in a young woman’s life during this time.  She’s meeting many people, trying to find her way.  “The white rose grows alone, always, always looking for a home. Trying to find another town, still feeling all alone.” She’s left her family home, and, as most all young women do, she’s looking to build her own home, and she’s going from place to place and still feeling alone.

And as with most young women, she’s bought into the fairy tale myth of “happily ever after,” but she’s finding out that “happily ever after” isn’t really realistic, “And will there be another day of hoping with an end that always fails?

However, most young women can’t let that myth go.  As most young women, this one still has hope that the fairy tale will come true: “Or will it be as she hoped, an end just like the lovely fairy tales….”   And hers will be, “the fairy tale.

When she does find the man of her dreams, “there will be light from the moon and the sun, when they join together just as one, there will be sound from their hearts.

See?  It’s just that simple.

The complete lyrics to Rose by Dark Horse District
One petals falls to the ground,
never, never, never coming home.
Followed by another round.
And all those feeling all alone.

The white rose grows alone,
always, always looking for a home.
Trying to find another town,
still feeling all alone.

She’s singing, “Where oh where will he be?
Oh where oh where will he be?”
when she’s him for the very first time.

And will there be another day
of hoping with an end that always fails?
Or will it be as she hoped,
an end just like the lovely fairy tales….
the fairy tale.

She’s singing, “Where oh where will he be?
Oh where oh where will he be?”
when she’s him for the very first time.

Oh, there will be light from the moon and the sun,
when they join together just as one, there will be sound from their hearts.
When they join together just as one….
when they join together just as one.

She’s singing, “Where oh where will he be?
Oh where oh where will he be?”
when she’s him for the very first time.
