Holly Palmer – A Rose By Any Other Name lyrics

In the eyes of the beholder
There's beauty in everything
It all depends on just how hard you’re looking
That gets you what life brings

So I really don't mind waiting
Though you’re half a world away
It's remembering your silly smile
That gets me through the day

I read fifteen chapters of a
Real slow book today
And I noticed for a short time
That I forgot you'd gone away

Through two hole pots of coffee
I washed the dishes and I cleaned the shelves
Then I thought I heard you tell me
To stop feeling sorry for myself

So some, they, they talk of cease fire
Or heading for higher ground
Like a frog that jumps to water lilies
You’re the safest thing I've found

And if you weren't so beautiful
I would love you just the same
You'd be a rose by any other name

I know I could have had a life of sandy beaches
Champagne and top shelf wine
But 'cos life doesn't last forever
I chose you and got it right the first time

We'll make hay while the sun shines
And love 'til the evening fades
And that beats riches
It's a better life we've made, so while

So some, they, they talk of cease fire
Or heading for higher ground
Like a frog that jumps to water lilies
You’re the safest thing I've found

And if you weren't so beautiful
I'd love you just the same
You'd be a rose by any other name

So when you get home, boy, look out
I'll show you just what loves all about
There'll be candles and wine
I'll pull down the blind and I'll tell
All our friends that we're out

So some, they, they talk of cease fire
Or heading for higher ground
Like a frog that jumps to water lilies
You’re the safest thing I've found

And if you weren't so beautiful
I'd love you just the same
You'd be a rose by any other name
