Sweet Sad Rose




Sweet sad rose by a river flowing
Sweet sad rose and you give her knowing
She won’t ever be the kind to give it back to you
Though it’s all that’s in your mind there’s nothing you can do
But that’s just how it goes

With a sweet sad rose in a selfish garden
Sweet sad rose – One can’t help but harden
Knowing there’s a wall no one could ever hope to scale
Sure to give it all despite the fact you’re bound to fail
And everybody knows

Sweet sad rose

Then there comes an evening where the pleasure is so thick
You can’t imagine leaving without feeling very sick
And after all the heartache she can give
She knows that she’s still positively
Haunting from her head down to her painted toes

Sweet sad rose by your bed undressing
Sweet sad rose – in your head, you’re guessing
She won’t ever be the kind to settle down for good
How you’d love to change her mind as if anyone could
But it seems no doubt this dream’s about to close

Sweet sad rose
