My daughter Sophie Wellen wrote a poem about the book the Lovely Bones that became the lyrics for this song.

Michael James played the guitar solo.


I am watching, looking, listening
I feel the pain in my mother’s every heartbeat
The sorrow and the lost burrowing inside me
My father’s secret weeping
My sister’s blank page
Why would he do this to my family?
We are good people
I am a good person

I cry sometimes
I cry sometimes
I cry sometimes
I cry

Every drop of rain is one of my tears
Every lightning bolt is my wanting for revenge
Every thunderclap is my scream for help
Wanting to be with my loved ones
Nobody can hear me
I’m all alone in a world of emptiness


I call for my mother
I call for my father

Fields of roses and violets
Fields of roses and orchids
Fields of roses and violets
Fields of roses and orchids
