Ian, Janis - Roses Lyrics



She never had too much of money
Friendly strangers were all she knew
Nobody ever came to call but you
I would not say she isn't happy
Though the eyes of a fool will make her blue
Nobody's ever seen the tears it's true
I guess nobody wanted to

We'll have a celebration
Ice cream and candy cakes
She's very young to go so far away
And then there'll be the papers
In black and white to say we're through
Nobody every loved me quite like you
I guess nobody wanted to

And there'll be roses
In the springtime still I guess there will
I wish her roses and song
And she'll be older
As years go by, and how they fly
Will she be lonely without me along?

She doesn't make friends easily
She's only known a few
The incidental stranger passing through
On Sundays and holidays
I'll take her far away
We never tried to save the love we knew
I guess nobody wanted to

    She never had too much of money
    Friendly strangers were all she knew
    Nobody ever came to call but you
    I would not say she isn't happy
    Though the eyes of a fool will make her blue
    Nobody's ever seen the tears it's true
    I guess nobody wanted to

    We'll have a celebration
    Ice cream and candy cakes
    She's very young to go so far away
    And then there'll be the papers
    In black and white to say we're through
    Nobody every loved me quite like you
    I guess nobody wanted to

    And there'll be roses
    In the springtime still I guess there will
    I wish her roses and song
    And she'll be older
    As years go by, and how they fly
    Will she be lonely without me along?

    She doesn't make friends easily
    She's only known a few
    The incidental stranger passing through
    On Sundays and holidays
    I'll take her far away
    We never tried to save the love we knew
    I guess nobody wanted to.

    So wonderful and yet horribly underrated. An ode to life. There will be roses in the springtime ... and she will be older ...
