Lyrics
The Rose
©2014 Greg Lambert

I lost the flowers you gave to me
They were taken by the wind
Lost forever, and a rainy day
They just blew away

I watch the raindrops as they hit the ground
Like my memories of you
Random, scattered, dancing all around
Energy, imagery, and nowhere to go but down

Chorus
I call your name now, lovely one
Here on your corner, among the flowers
But the rose is gone

You like the romance of a summer day
Like the day we fell in love
You left your flowers and your corner stand
And you took my hand

All the hours seemed like days
As we sang our songs of love
Just two lovers singing in the rain
Melody, harmony, heroin and cocaine

Chorus

I lost the flowers you gave to me
But the memory remains
Ever fragrant, pressed within my heart
Hiding from the rain

And all these showers blow like hurricanes
As they storm across my mind
Lovely flower taken in her prime
Thoughtlessly, needlessly
I just came to say goodbye

Chorus
