Whatever happen to my
Garden of black roses
Oh nurturin' years of so long
Whatever happen to my
Garden of black roses
They say a stranger
Treated them wrong

When I was a boy
I planted a garden
That meant so much to me
One of reality
A garden of love,
None like it
One of a kind quality
A prayer for you and me

If we can keep the candles burnin'
To shelter them from pain,
Oh let them laugh again,
Shower the world
With their innocence
Who's tears felt like rain
History remains the same

But one by one
They come up missing
Strangers thought I was sleepin'
Some life means nothin' to some
Watch out, now
We've got them on the run
