    Why do I get a feeling that this song fits perfectly the story of Salem and Ozma?

    Re-hearing this song/Analysing all the lyrics plus seeing how Ruby is acting so far in V6 is slowly starting to confirm my theory that she is very much dead inside and will only care for her teammates and family members, that the happiness she displays is a facade and now in V6 the mask is starting to crack and the morbidness of this song is finally gonna start making sense as her true emotions(Possibly; Volatile anger, crying outbursts, cold heartless stares as she kills grimm,)slipping through the cracks turning her from Little Red Riding Hood with a Scythe to the literal Grim Reaper.

    I love how it's a mother daughter song in all senses then Jeff comes through with one line and makes it a family song beyond the obvious inclusion of the instrumentals

    I just realized. Besides from this song, is there any other song in the show that is from Ruby's point of view? Also from my opinion for someone who looks like the most positive in the group Ruby has one of the darkest songs. It's also says the "It's your blood that's red like roses" and she says "Red like roses fills my dreams and finds me" Well, her dreams certainly look dark.

    i couldn't take it couldn't stand another minute
    couldn't bear another day without you in it
    all of the joy that I had known for my life
    was stripped away from me the minute that you died
    to have you in my life was all i ever wanted
    but now without you I'm a soul forever haunted
    can't help but feel that i had taken you for granted
    no way in hell that i can ever comprehend this
    i wasn't dreaming when they told me you were gone
    i was wide awake and feeling that they had to be wrong
    how could you leave me when you swore that you would stay
    now i'm trapped inside a nightmare every single fucking day
    it's like a movie but there's not a happy ending
    every scene fades black and there's no pretending
    this little fairy tale doesn't seem to end well
    theres no knight in shining armor who will wake me from the spell
    i know you didn't plan this
    you tried to do what's right
    but in the middle of this madness
    i'm the one you left to win this fight
    red like roses
    fills my head with dreams and finds me
    always closer
    to the emptiness and sadness
    that has come to take the place of you
    i know you're broken down by anger and by sadness
    you feel I left you in a world that's full of madness
    wish i could talk to you if only for a minute
    make you understand the reasons why i did it
    i wanna tell you that you're all that ever mattered
    want you to know that for eternity i'm shattered
    i tried so hard just to protect you but i failed to
    and in a prison of abandonment i've jailed you
    i never planned that i would leave you there alone
    i was sure that i would see you when i made it back home
    and all the times I swore that it would be okay
    now i'm nothing but a liar and you're thrown into the fray
    this bedtime story ends with misery ever after
    the pages are torn and there's no final chapter
    i didn't have a choice I did what I had to do
    i made a sacrifice but forced a bigger sacrifice on you
    i know you've lived a nightmare
    i caused you so much pain
    but baby please don't do what i did
    i don't want you to waste your life in vain
    you're not the only one who needed me i thought you understood
    you were the one i needed and you left me as I always feared you would
    would I change it if i could?
    it doesn't matter how
    the petals scatter now
    every nightmare just discloses
    it's your blood that's red like roses
    and no matter what I do
    nothing ever takes the place of you

    Here’s what we know about Ruby. She’s attached to Yang, the only mother she’s known. She doesn’t handle loss well. She’s always happy, masking how scared or sad she’s feeling. She attaches herself to people to fill a void she knows will never close. And she charges in without think no because she needs everyone including herself to see she can handle herself. That she’s grown up.

    Crackpot theory here.
    What if this song was more than about Ruby and Summer? What if it was between Summer and her daughters Ruby AND Yang?
    Hear me out.
    Some of the lines in the song show an intense fear of abandonment, something that Yang, whose birth mother left her as a child, feels very strongly about. For Yang the biggest nightmare she could have is Summer abandoning her like Raven did. "You were the one I needed and you left me like I always feared you would."
    A lot of Summer's lines could also apply to Yang as much as Ruby.
    One example is the line: "I made a sacrifice but forced a bigger sacrifice on you." Could apply to Ruby as a Silver Eyed Warrior like her mother who needed to take down the Grimm. And to Yang being forced to take care of her baby sister in place of her mother and protect her.
    Another is the Chorus could refer to Ruby being Yang's last link to Summer. That Ruby fills her dreams but is so close to the emptiness and sadness Yang feels after Summer's death.
    Honestly it could be written that way so that it does apply to both, just in different ways.
