"Roses for the Dead" is a single by Funeral for a Friend release from their album Hours. It charted at number 39 in the UK.
Matt Davies wrote this song about the death of one of his close friends. In an issue of Kerrang! magazine in an interview he said he saw everyone else grieving and felt weird because he wasn't crying, and he just took everything in:
A heavy song, but not in the way metal is typically considered to be "heavy". This is about the death of close friends; I saw my friends and family all grieving but I didn't know how to react. I felt odd because I wasn't crying, I sat there and took it all in. I wanted to pay tribute to the memory of those people, who I missed so much, and to express that.
In the album booklet it says: "Dedicated to the memory of Lianne Davies and Lloyd Bird, eternally loved and never forgotten"
