Story behind the song
I talked to a woman I knew about whether or not she had gotten any gifts from her family for Mother's Day. She replied kind of sadly, "No. It's just a day." I felt that this was a terrible shame for this woman worked hard every day providing for her family and sometimes caring for her children while working simultaneously. Of all mothers, she deserved something special on Mother's Day. I wrote this song to express my frustration against her family and my wish that I could somehow give her just a single rose to make her feel loved, if that were appropriate.
Lyrics
A Rose for Romaine ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Chorus It's just a day, Just the one day made just for her. Seems like forever. Yet, nothing for Romaine. It's just a day Like the hundreds that came before Giving her all for Her world, her life, her pain. Verse One Sunday through Friday It all looks the same. She's awake before sunrise, Sunshine or rain. A mother at work, A mother at home. Life like a metronome. Chorus It's just a day, Just the one day made just for her. Seems like forever. Yet, nothing for Romaine. Like no one sees Past their spotless reflections In pools of deception. Content like kings to reign. Verse Two A few paper flowers And one rubber band. A year of surrender Held in one hand. A passionless gift. The tears never flow; Lost in the undertow. Verse Three You suffer in silence You get little praise You care for your loved ones With patience and grace Take this one rose, And know that I see The pain of their apathy. Chorus For, it's just a day, Just the one day made just for her. Seems like forever. Yet, nothing for Romaine. It's just a day Like the hundreds before, But there is something more. There's a Healer for the pain. Take this one rose And know that He sees The pain of their apathy.
