The pictures tell the story
This life has many shades
Id wake up every morning and before Id start each day
Id take a drag from last nights cigarette
That smoldered in its tray
Down a little something and then be on my way

I traveled far and wide
And laid this head in many ports
I was guided by a compass
I saw beauty to the north
I drew the tales of many lives
And wore the faces of my own
I had these memories all around me
So I wouldnt be alone

Some may be from showing up
Others are from growing up
Sometimes I was so messed up and didnt have a clue
I aint winning no one over
I wear it just for you
Ive got your name written here
In a rose tattoo

In a rose tattoo
In a rose tattoo
Ive got your name written here
In a rose tattoo

This ones for the mighty sea
Mischief, gold and piracy
This ones for the man that raised me
Taught me sacrifice and bravery
This ones for our favorite game
Black and gold, we wave the flag
This ones for my family name
With pride I wear it to the grave

Some may be from showing up
Others are from growing up
Sometimes I was so messed up and didnt have a clue
I ain't winning no one over
I wear it just for you
Ive got your name written here
In a rose tattoo

In a rose tattoo
In a rose tattoo
Ive got your name written here,
In a rose tattoo
In a rose tattoo
In a rose tattoo
Ive got your name written here
In a rose tattoo

This one means the most to me
Stays here for eternity
A ship that always stays the course
An anchor for my every choice
A rose that shines down from above
I signed and sealed these words in blood
I heard them once, sung in a song
It played again and we sang along

Youll always be there with me
Even if youre gone
Youll always have my love
Our memory will live on

Some may be from showing up
Others are from growing up
Sometimes I was so messed up and didnt have a clue
I ain't winning no one over
I wear it just for you
Ive got your name written here
In a rose tattoo

In a rose tattoo
In a rose tattoo
Ive got your name written here,
In a rose tattoo
In a rose tattoo
In a rose tattoo
With pride Ill wear it to the grave for you
In a rose tattoo
In a rose tattoo
Ive got your name written here,
In a rose tattoo
In a rose tattoo
In a rose tattoo
Signed and sealed in blood I would die for you
