Blue Roses

Blue roses will blossom in the snow
Before I ever let you go
Blue roses will grow up to the sky
Before I ever make you cry
Blue roses

You need more reassurance than a frightened orphan child
That I'm always gonna want you, that I'll always be beguilded
So I search for words to tell you
That my love for you is blind
But this fragment of a children's song is all that I can find

Blue roses will blossom in the snow
Before I ever let you go
Blue roses will grow up to the sky
Before I ever make you cry
Blue roses

This nursery rhyme is corny, it is stranded out of time
Yet it's simple and it's honest
And since when was that a crime?
And perhaps whoever wrote it
Loved someone like I love you
For in matters of the heart I've learned
There's little that is new

Blue roses will blossom in the snow
Before I ever let you go
Blue roses will grow up to the sky
Before I ever make you cry
Blue roses will blossom in the snow
Before I ever let you go
Blue roses will grow up to the sky
Before I ever make you cry
Before I ever make you cry
Blue roses
