Daryl Hall & John Oates – Throw The Roses Away lyrics

Words can never change

What our hearts have denied

And all the sweet memories

Wont bring the love back to life

And the more that we try

The more its gonna make you see

No words, hopes, anything

Will bring back life to your dream

All night it took me to learn

Oh baby, baby how to say

This love just wont work

Just for once in my life

Do I wanna go with whats right

Lts gone; weve got to move on

You know that's the truth - so do I


Sad boquets we save

Wont make up one sweet day

Throw the roses away

Don't need them anymore

Cause they just make you cry

If you let it go, let it go, let it go baby

Youll get some peace of mind

Only lonely for now

But youll come back from the pain

Though l don't know if lll ever find

Someone iike you again


Sad boquets we save

Wont make up one sweet day

Throw the roses away

Words in my mind

Talk about you to me all the time

Oh why should just a rose

Have such a sad hold over our lives

Chorus: (repeat)
