Liner Notes: 

PLEASE HELP ME

I can't decide on what the title should be
for this lyric,

WHAT DO YOU THINK GUYS

this is about a guy going out to the pub for a beer with his girl, Rose
when another girl tries to buy him a drink
and want's to dance with him
but his girl doesn't take it well

Thank you for your feedback guys
it's how I learn

Lyrics: 

PLAY YOUR VIOLIN / BROKEN ROSE

a girl across the bar from me, said
I'll buy you that drink your wanting
a flame haired lass, eyes pale green
then she asked if I was dancing

so I looked right at her freckled face
and I said, no thanks me darling
I'm with my Rose, next door she waits
and she has my heart and ring

oooh one too many and here we go
she's staring into the burning coals
I'm sending out a "save our souls"
and into the city streets it flows

play your violin, for a broken Rose
play your violin, for a broken Rose

eyes were wide and fists all clenched
Rose throws a glass n calls her, wench
flame haired girl shouts back you "whore"
you should know I've had your man before

Rose showed me she was seething
and we all stirred into a brawl
but the band just kept on playing
bottles smashed against the walls

oooh one too many and here we go
she's staring into the burning coals
I'm sending out a "save our souls"
and into the city streets it flows

play your violin, for a broken Rose
play your violin, for a broken Rose

well it's quiet now, the fires gone out
streets are calm, not a soul about
drink she bought me, I swilled it down
and a broken rose lies on the ground

Well this ended darkly. I like the story telling, and I like the choice of the name Rose. Lots of potential there, and you found it!

For a title I like "A Broken Rose". Nice story here, I'm gonna pull out the guitar and see if I can put some of it together just to see what it'd sound like. Some tough verbiage, I imagine this might be difficult to sing and play. I enjoyed my read, thanks for sharing!
