A Rose For Emily Lyrics

by The Zombies

The summer is here at last
The sky is overcast
And no one brings a rose for Emily

She watches her flowers grow
While lovers come and go
To give each other roses from her tree
But not a rose for Emily

Emily (Emily), can't you see?
There's nothing you can do (how the sun is shining)
There's loving everywhere but none for you

Her roses are fading now
She keeps her pride somehow
That's all she has protecting her from pain

And as the years go by,
She will grow old and die
The roses in her garden fade away
Not one left for her grave
Not a rose for Emily

Emily (Emily), can't you see?
There's nothing you can do (How the sun is shining)
There's loving everywhere
But none for you

Her roses are fading now
She keeps her pride somehow
That's all she has protecting her from pain

And as the years go by,
She will grow old and die
The roses in her garden fade away
Not one left for her grave
Not a rose for Emily
