The Last Rose of Summer

Speed kills, but beauty lives forever

Outdoor Rock Audience 1

Speed thrills but beauty knows your name

Soundgarden Crowd - Use THis

I fell ill inside eternal winter

chester audience 3

And stood still beside eternal flame

Soundgarden audience 4

Cuz when I ride

chester bennington lights audience

With you tonight

Premier Chris - USE THIS

We can move

chester bennington performs 2

At the speed of light

chris and audience

With all I’d asked and all I’d pray…

The last rose of summer would stay

Chris and Chester wail together

The first time that I ever saw you

Crashing hard through days of pain

You were one of God’s children

Left to cry out in the rain

Waiting to be saved again

Cuz when I ride

With you tonight

The last rose of summer

The last rose of summer

The last rose of summer is gone

But

When I Rise

With you tonight

  1. I think you’re the same person from Reddit, so I’ll just post my reply again here I guess :)…. I’m glad it touched your soul, thank you! The imagery is a good approximation of the visions I see when I listen to that song now. I wanted it to be about the fans too, and the power of rock. Hence how almost every picture is from their live shows and has fans in it.
