Blue Rose
(Kenneth Banks, Lizz Wright)

Lyrics:

Blue as the crying sky
With no thorn, no thistle
Only an open face
Staring at the waking world

Maybe she's just a morning glory
Lost in a tangle of vine
Maybe she's just a morning glory
lost in a tangle of vine

Her arms stretch wide
To recieve life
And her roots go deep into the black earth
Wild strength and she blooms

Maybe she's just a morning glory
Lost in a tangle of vine
Maybe she's just a monring glory
Lost in a tangle a vine

She blooms while the people sleep
Only the travelers see her
To those who rise with the noonday sun
She is a closed mystery

Maybe she's just a morning glory
Lost in a tangle of vine
Maybe she's just a morning glory
Lost in a tangle of vine

Lost in a tangle of vine
Lost in a tangle of vine

This is an autobiographical composition  It has everything to do with my background and how all of a sudden my story is being shared with all these people and celebrated with all these people, said Wright. I see myself as something very simple. In order to keep doing what Im doing, I have to remember that its very simple, that Im simple, that the things I believe in are simple, and that the music and the magic behind the music, all of those things are very simple. I think the images in Blue Rose portray that message.
