My tears on the roses
That you just gave to me
With a note that you are sorry
Begging me to set you free.

My tears are on the roses
And because I love you so
Your request I granted
That is all you'll ever know.

I'll be cryin' long, long after
The roses fade away
For without you I'll be dying
Just a little every day.

My tears are on the roses
But the roses can not tell
So my darling I will miss you
And just say I wish you well...
