Connie Smith – Paper Roses lyrics

(Paper roses paper roses)
I realize the way your eyes deceived me with tender looks that I mistook for love
So take away the flowers that you gave me and send the kind that you remind me of
Paper roses paper roses oh how real those roses seem to be
But they're only imitation like your imitation love for me

I thought that you would be a perfect lover
You seemed so full of sweetness at the start
But like a big red rose that's made of paper there isn't any sweetness in your heart
Paper roses paper roses...

    When I was very young, like 8 years ago, I always heard my grand aunt, the sister of my grandmother, sing this song. My family is a lover of music and I was raised with so much music. I'm not exactly a music lover though, I'm a voracious reader and loves writing poetry and stories. This song inspired me to write a poem about love and roses. It's quite sweet and sad for me since the singer was deceived by a boy she loved and whom she thought loved her also. It's a sad song.
