Kylie Minogue - Where The Wild Roses Grow Lyrics




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

From the first day I saw her I knew she was the one
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

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

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, "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?"

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

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
She lay on the bank, the wind light as a thief
And I kissed her goodbye, said, "All beauty must die."
And I leant down and planted a rose 'tween her teeth

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

  27. Dmitriy Dobr

    Okay, I have several questions, how you could publish this video 9 years ago, if the date of registration of your channel is 2019? Are you an error? Or a time traveler? Who are you? Statistics says that you are more powerful than T-Series, who are you?

  29. Carlos Pinho

    I had no idea that Kylie Minogue sang this song.Wow.

  30. Simiral Entertainment

    No one knows this, but maybe Eve was red-haired in the Garden of Eden.

  31. Katt Kit

    My interpretation of the song and the lyrics is that she was probably a very innocent and naive girl and I’m assuming this takes place in the early 1900s. He probably encountered her while she was alone and was immediately captivated by her beauty and stalked her to her home. He then entered her home, she was scared which is why she began to tremble and cry, but being so naive he was able to calm her and manipulate her into sleeping with him. He then arrived the second day where he had already planned on murdering her, probably for a few reasons the main one is so that he could never lose her, her beauty would remain forever and that she would always be his. He then took her to where the wild roses grow and proceeded to murder her. The reason they call her the wild rose is probably by the time they found the body it was succumbed to the elements and because of the lack of technology they weren’t able to identify the body therefore naming her the wild rose.

  32. Katt Kit

    My dad let me watch this when I was like 7 and it literally traumatised me lmao 😂
