Where the Wild Roses Grow, Daily Ink IX [SOLD] by DjamilaKnopf Where the Wild Roses Grow, Daily Ink IX [SOLD] by DjamilaKnopf
Music On the last day I took her where the wild roses grow
And she lay on the bank, the wind light as a thief
As I kissed her goodbye, I said, 'All beauty must die'
And lent down and planted a rose between her teeth Music

I just love this song.

The original is available for $85 ($68 until 25 Jan) here:

Aw, thanks so much!
I actually prefer it when people write comments in English. That way everyone can understand. :]

Then English it is! I'm much more fluent than with my German anyways :)
And you're welcome! Now I'm feeling like I have to model one of my characters on one of the faces you draw... if that's ok with you.

What i like About your art is how naturally your characters fit into their background. The way this Ones hair flows gives of this water nimpf impression without exegurating it. Love it keep it op

I pulled the imagery from Nick Cave's "Where the Wild Roses Grow", but I bet that one was influenced by Ophelia.

They call me The Wild Rose
But my name is Elisa Day
Why they call me it I do not know
For my name is Elisa Day

From the first day I saw her I knew she was the one
As she stared in my eyes and smiled
For her lips were the colour of the roses
That grew down the river, all bloody and wild

When he knocked on my door and entered the room
My trembling subsided in his sure embrace
He would be my first man, and with a careful hand
He wiped at the tears that ran down my face

[Chorus]

On the second day I brought her a flower
She was more beautiful than any woman I'd seen
I said, "Do you know where the wild roses grow
So sweet and scarlet and free?"

On the second day he came with a single red rose
He said: "Will you give me your loss and your sorrow?"
I nodded my head, as I lay on the bed
"If I show you the roses will you follow?"

[Chorus]

On the third day he took me to the river
He showed me the roses and we kissed
And the last thing I heard was a muttered word
As he knelt above me with a rock in his fist

On the last day I took her where the wild roses grow
And she lay on the bank, the wind light as a thief
As I kissed her goodbye, I said, "All beauty must die"
And lent down and planted a rose between her teeth

"Where The Wild Roses Grow"-KYLIE MINOGUE (feat. Nick Cave)
