The Lyrics Are Below

Like Roses

Please don't make me answer you

The world is big but my circles are small

And please don't try to shut me out

I'm in love that's all

 

I'm not afraid to listen, if you're not afraid to hear

 

And please don't laugh I just can't help,

Grinning when I'm giving it all

And please don't show you're face around my place

I've seen it all before

 

And I'm not afraid of dying, but sometimes I refrain,

 

I believe that life goes on like a hurricane

And you struggle through the pieces till you're not so sane

Anymore

And so you want and you suffer till you've had enough

and in the end there’s a heaven in the cold clear bluff, only want

 

(chorus)

To come through like roses

To head fast like a clear stream, to feel soft like a freight train,

In the middle of a bad dream

All you wanted was to be proud,

Like a rough little

Soldier,

There’s a place where the soul ends

Comes through like roses,

Comes through like roses

 

Looking down I see my cigarette is even,

With the horizon that my feet have made in the blanket,

Looking back I lost the fight it was uneven,

You never gave me time enough to say I was wrong

Or I was sorry,

 

I can see your head's still spinning like a merry-go-round

And you're glaring at the people like you've been shut down

Quarter time,

It's a war gonna win no matter what it takes,

And you can feel every second of the cold heartache

Coming down

 

(chorus)

(solo)

(chorus)

(fade)
