Hayes, Darren - Roses Lyrics




What if I told you that your time was up,
That as every second passes there's a moment gone,
And in twenty three hours the sun is gonna set, forever.

Would you hug a little tighter, would you let go first,
Would you focus on love and then forget the hurt,
Living the moment and wish your life away.

How would you spend your last night on earth,
Would you kiss your enemies say sorry first,
Would you take enough time to say your last goodbyes.

All the little battles that you never won,
All the music in the opera never sung,
Emotions that were silent all these years,

You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
You can't smell the roses, no it's not a rehearsal,
You only get one life so make it right,
You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
So live every moment like it's the last night on earth,
Cause this is the last night on earth.

What if I told you that I had regrets,
I would trade in all my happiness for one last kiss,
For a minute or two lying by your side.

What if I chose over nobody more,
If I uttered only promises with empty talk,
If I knew back then the things that I know now.

I would tell you that I love you then we'd all get low,
There are peaks and there are valleys, you've got to have known,
A second chance, it rarely comes around.

You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
You can't smell the roses, no it's not a rehearsal,
You only get one life so make it right,
You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
So live every moment like it's the last night on earth.

If I could have my time again,
I would make sure you knew just how I feel,
Somewhere I wait for much too long,
And the seasons change without me.

You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
You can't smell the roses, no it's not a rehearsal,
You only get one life so make it right,
You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
So live every moment like it's the last night on earth,
As if it's the last night on earth,
Cause this is the last night for love.

    Lyrics 🖤
    What if I told you that your time was up,
    That as every second passes there's a moment gone,
    In 23 hours the sun is gonna set forever,
    Would you hug a little tighter,
    Would you let go first,
    Would you focus on love then forget the hurt,
    Live in the moment or wish your life away,
    How would you spend you last night on Earth,
    Would you kiss your enemies,
    Say sorry first,
    Would you take enough time to say your last goodbye,
    All the little battles that you never won,
    All the music and the opera never sung,
    Emotions that were silent all these years,
    You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
    You can't smell the roses,
    No it's not a rehearsal,
    You only get one life so make it right,
    You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
    So live every moment like this is the last night on Earth,
    Because this is the last night on Earth,
    What if I told you that I had regrets,
    I would trade in all my happiness for one last kiss,
    For a minute or two lying by your side,
    What if chose a road no-body walked,
    If I arted all my promises with empty talk,
    If I knew back then the things that I know now,
    I would tell you that I love you then we'd all get low
    There are Peaks and there are Valley's,
    You've got to know,
    Second chance,
    It rarely comes around
    You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
    You can't smell the roses,
    No it's not a rehearsal,
    You only get one life so make it right,
    You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
    So live every moment like this is the last night on Earth,
    cuz this is the last night on Earth,
    If I could have my time again,
    I would make sure,
    You knew just how I felt,
    cuz I went away for much too long,
    And the seasons change,
    Without me,
    You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
    You can't smell the roses,
    No it's not a rehearsal,
    You only get one life so make it right,
    You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
    So live every moment like this is the last night on Earth,
    cuz this is the last night on Earth,
    cuz this is the last night on Earth. 🖤

  19. 住吉 sumiyoshi瞬真 shun-ma

    Darren from savage garden ???!!!! I don t know he sing alone now I love savage garden When they do music l lové so much the voice darren he is always the Numbers one for me

    Teddy Draper

    Yes, 住吉瞬真, it's Darren Hayes, the singer from Savage Garden. This song is included in his last album, released a couple of years ago, named "Secret codes and battleships". But his solo career comprises four albums. Before that one, "Spin", "The tension and the spark" and "This delicate thing we've made". I strongly advice you to listen to some of his songs :)

    Heath Guthery

    Wow, Samer. Thank you very much for your kind comments. It's really refreshing, I really appreciate :)

  31. Teddy Draper

    Thank you very much for your kind comment, mjtron. I cost me some time surfing through the net to get a nice assortment of video shots. You can find some totally free. Some others you subscribe and have a 7-day trial. Once you get lots of videos, let yourself get inspared by the music in order to "paint" it with your collected videos. :)

  32. mjtron

    OMG! Amazing shots! Where did you find those images? Amazing! really!

  33. Teddy Draper

    Thank you for encouraging me, Iray! You're really kind :)

  34. lray801

    Bravo, well-done!

  35. Teddy Draper

    Thank you for encouraging me to make a new one. Your comments are always soooo warmly welcome :)
    This is one of my favourites as well, the importance of being you, of living life for the sake of good, for the benefit of your body, mind ans soul, to make a good choice between important things and disposable ones.
    That's life!
    <3
