about

Slow love song. Waves of rolling piano arpeggios accent sweet and understated vocals and ukulele in a tender incantation of true love.

lyrics

ROSES AND VICTORY
He leaned on my breast and said
I can hear the ocean
I can hear the ocean
He brushed my skin and said
You smell like roses
And victory
Roses and victory
That's how it's gonna be
Roses and victory
For you and me
When my last crust of bread is all gone
And my song isn't right
Will you love me, will we fight
When the sea has gone out
And my boat won't come in
Will you care, will you swim, will you be there
Will you bring me
Roses and victory
He makes fine art and says
I believe in I believe in this
He takes my hand and says
Give me one more
Give me one more kiss
Roses and victory
That's how it's gonna be
Roses and victory
Oh babe, for you and me
When my last crust of bread is all gone
And my song isn't right
Will you love me, will we fight
When the sea has gone out
And my boat won't come in
Will you care, will you swim, will you be there
Will you bring me
Roses and victory
He leaned on my breast and said
I can hear the ocean
I can hear the ocean
